The most recent edition of The Moisture Seekers, the SSF newsletter, contained information about their annual National Patient Conference. It appears to have the potential to be excellent, as previous ones have been. I thoroughly enjoyed attending one several years ago. Here's the information. You may want to consider going.

I've thought about attending, but $170 isn't cheap. Maybe I was spoiled by AARDA's free patient event. Any thoughts on if this is worth the investment?

I am doing a book signing table and am very much looking forward to this conference.

I agree about the amount, but as an FYI, because I didn't know this at first, the cost includes dinner on Friday night and lunch on Saturday.

I went to the one in 2010 and for me, it was worth it.
