Congenital Hyperinsulinism International (CHI) and Cook Children’s hosted the 2018 Congenital Hyperinsulinism Family Conference from July 27-29, 2018, in Fort Worth, Texas. 150 people gathered including kids with HI, their siblings, parents, physicians, researchers, and members of the Biotech industry.
Participants learned all about congenital hyperinsulinism through presentations from specialists, panel discussions, small group interactive sessions, speed dating with the specialists, the sharing of family stories, and informal time for getting to know each other. From reports on new innovative treatment projects to living with HI from the perspective of the young people who live with it, there was something for everyone.
