TSC National Conference 2023
Join us at this wonderful opportunity for individuals, families and professionals in the Tuberous Sclerosis Complex community to network and learn more about TSC.
Learn more about TSC from a range of medical professionals and those with lived experience. To date we have speakers confirmed on TSC and the kidneys, transition, neurology and TAND. A full programme will be released in early 2023.
This conference provides a unique opportunity for TSC-affected families and adults to hear from and ask questions of expert TSC health professionals and to connect with and learn from each other.
Feedback from our last national conference in 2018:
"We found that learning the latest in knowledge about TSC that has been researched and experienced was really interesting."
"Thanks for holding and organising this year's conference, I have come away a lot more informed of TSC and what steps to take for ongoing management. A great bunch of people and we look forward to attending the next one."
"So important and valuable to connect with other families!!!"
"The guest speakers' subjects were relevant and they were open to questions which was great."
