              Cynthia,
              My wife and I went last year and it was very well attended. The doctors and their info sharing (there was a question and answer period) was fabulous. For me, it was the first time I had actually met anyone who had hcm and the comradere was great. The board of doctors seem to be the best of hcm specialists. Go if you can, it's worth the trip just to see Lisa in action!!!!


              Hope to see you there

                  Lisa-
                  I'm considering attending. Can you provide a brief outline of what to expect? I can't imagine meeting others with HCM!

                    This is the 7th meeting - each has been better then the one before. You will have the chance to see others with HCM, talk, laugh, meet new friends, see those faces attached to the names on the board! You will meet all the TOP docs in the field of HCM and have the chance to ask all the questions you want - or simply listen to others.

                    I look forward to the meeting each year as I get the chance to see you all and we learn AND have a little fun!

                    Hope to see you there!
