Even as we're recovering from an amazing XLH Day in Houston, Texas (more on that next week), we're gearing up to represent the XLH community at other events this fall.
First up is the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) annual conference in September, to be held this year in Atlanta. You can read about it here: http://www.asbmr.org/annual-meeting
We are part of the Rare Bone Disease Patient Network, which will have a booth at the conference, and is involved in a workshop that will include brief talks on a number of rare bone diseases. The section on XLH will be presented by the Network's Scientific Advisory Board member, Suzanne Jan deBeur.
Karl Insogna, MD, will be one of several doctors talking about "How Discoveries Lead to Treatment of Rare Bone Disease Treatment." His presentation will be focused specifically on XLH in adults.
In addition, several members of our Scientific Advisory Board will also be there for posters and/or presentations, and we'll report back on the details after the event.
