Neuroblastoma Parent Education Conference

The annual Neuroblastoma Parent Education Conference provides a unique platform for parents and guardians of children affected by neuroblastoma to learn about some of the most innovative and up-to-date research in to the disease, and to engage with the experts directly.

The Conference aims to:

  • Share information on some of the most innovative and up-to-date neuroblastoma research with families, and provide them with the opportunity to hear from and engage with world-leading experts directly.
  • Give families the opportunity to meet and spend time with others in similar situations, and the Solving Kids’ Cancer team.
  • Provide professionals with the opportunity to network, share ideas and develop collaborations; as well as interact directly with the families impacted by their work.

Our 6th annual Neuroblastoma Parent Education Conference takes place from 10th – 12th November 2017, at De Vere Latimer Estate, Buckinghamshire.

A full agenda is available here.

Spread over two days, the Conference features presentations on a variety of topics intended to provide parents with vital information on some of the latest research and treatments, and equip them with some of the knowledge needed to help make informed decisions about their child’s treatment path. The venue provides an opportunity for parents to relax and interact with experts, other families, and the Solving Kids’ Cancer team; with food, refreshments, childcare and accommodation all provided for free. On Saturday night, parents and speakers are invited to attend a Gala Dinner which provides the opportunity for everyone to get together in an informal and friendly setting to meet, connect and share experiences.

Our aim is to develop a nexus of support for families, to help ensure that they have all the information and contacts they need throughout their journey.

History of the Neuroblastoma Parent Education Conference

The conference is entering its 6th year and has been constantly growing since its inception. It began as a one-day meeting and has since evolved in to a 2-day conference weekend to give families the time to gather as much information as possible and spend time with others going through a similar ordeal.
