The 10th annual 1p36 Deletion Support and Awareness conference will be held in the beautiful city of San Diego, California on Thursday July 28th through Saturday July 30, 2016. The conference will be held at the Sheraton Four Points in the middle of the city. See the hotel website here.
The theme of this year’s conference is HOPE – Help our One P’ers Everywhere. This conference will focus on coping with the stress that comes with being a 1p36 family. We have a speaker line-up of many professionals that will focus on helping your 1p36 child, and at the same time keeping you healthy. The emphasis will be on support, advocacy, and resilience. This year we are also planning a special agenda for the incredible siblings of our 1p36 children.
San Diego, California is truly a world-class city with many attractions and activities for a 1p36 family. If you like exploring the city, you can check out the famous Balboa Park, the cafes and restaurants in the historic Gaslamp District, take a harbor cruise, or go on a hot air balloon ride. If theme parks are more you thing, you can spend time at Sea World, Legoland, San Diego Zoo, the Birch Aquarium, the San Diego Safari Park, or drive 90 minutes to Disneyland. And don’t forget our famous San Diego beaches! Go surfing, kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, swimming, sailing, jet-skiing, or just lie on the sand. There is also a nine-whole golf course at the hotel, but if you prefer another course, there is 90+ to choose from in the county of San Diego, including the famous PGA-class Torrey Pines. And remember you are only an hour away from Temecula wine country! For more information about San Diego attractions click here
