Due to COVID-19 and continued concerns for the health and safety of IWSA families around the world, the IWSA will not host in-person events this year. The hope and plan is to meet in person again in 2022.
IWSA hosts John and Beth Morris will broadcast WAGR Weekend 2021 from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.
Events scheduled throughout the weekend will be available around the world via Zoom (links will be provided following registration).
IWSA families must register for the main meeting by May 15 to receive the IWSA's WAGR Weekend conference gift box.
In addition to the main meeting, interactive parent panels and Mom's and Dad's "Night" Zoom meetings will be scheduled throughout the weekend. Advanced registration for each event will be required and more information will be available soon.
WAGR Weekend is a wonderful opportunity to learn about current research related to WAGR syndrome, as well as updates on the activities of the International WAGR Syndrome Association. Specific presentations and information sharing vary from year to year, however, the focus is always on education, research, and family support.
This year, the main meeting will be held virtually on Saturday, July 17th from 12:00pm - 1:30pm EST.
Two parent panel sessions will be held on Sunday, July 18. The topics will be "Caregiver Support" and "Setting Achievable Goals". Opportunities to interact and ask questions will be available throughout each session. Registration details will be provided soon.
