This is a conference for patients and parents. Last year, it was just for adult patients. It's a series of talks about various treatments (including surgery, yoga, Pilates, injections, etc.). The most likely agenda will include adolescent/teen treatment options in the morning, cross-over topics mid-day, and adult options in the afternoon.
