One day prior to the start of the ML4 Research Conference, the ML4 Foundation hosts ML4 families from around the world for a day of support, information, and connection to the research community.

In 2014 this gathering brought 14 families from across the globe together to share stories of raising children with ML4, learn from the scientists about research, and offer loving support to each other. Many families stayed throughout the entire research conference to listen to scientific panels and learn about the basic and clinical science of MLIV, as well.

Our next conference will begin on June 19, 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia with a family day of learning, sharing, and support. Leading researchers will join families on this day to explain their work, and to share what they are learning about ML4. They will also be attending to listen and learn from ML4 families and children. All meetings will be held in the hotel where accommodations and meals will be made available.
