Join Us This Summer for the Mercy Children's Hospital Beckwith Wiedemann Syndrome Conference!
Kids Plastic Surgery and Mercy Children's Hospital invite you to attend a conference designed to provide individuals with Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome (BWS) and their families up-to-date information about the possible aspects of BWS and their management. The conference will take place August 1-3, and will consist of lectures by specialists with BWS expertise in the fields of cardiology, child psychology, genetics, nursing, oncology, orthodontics, orthopedics, plastic surgery, pulmonology, and speech therapy. There will be an opportunity for clinical evaluations by plastic surgery, speech therapy and orthodontics for individuals who have already had tongue reduction and those who may be considering tongue reduction.
The Beckwith-Wiedemann Children’s Foundation is a co-sponsor of this event and will provide opportunities for BWS individuals and their families to network.
Please join us in celebrating Dr. Jeffrey Marsh’s 35 years of working with the BWS community and take the opportunity to meet Dr. Earl Gage, who will be taking over Dr. Marsh’s practice on 1 July 2015 when Dr. Marsh will retire.
