This year's XLH Day on Columbus Day weekend (October 5-7) in the Baltimore/Washington, DC area is going to be bigger and better than ever!
We're adding a one-day pre-event called "Symposium on Hypophosphatemia: past, present and future," which will focus on the experiences and challenges for adults living with XLH and related hypophosphatemias, including the autosomal versions and Tumor Induced Osteomalacia. It's an opportunity to discuss these issues in a structured environment, with representatives of the medical community and the U.S. Food & Drug Administration in the audience. The event will be videotaped and transcribed for sharing with the FDA and the medical community (including your clinicians!).

We'll have lots more information for you over the coming months, but for now, we're hoping you'll put the dates on your calendar and start making plans to attend. It's going to be fabulous, and we want you to be part of it.
