Sweet Mother is a 501(C)3 charity established to give underprivileged children both locally and globally a second chance through education. We believe that education helps the most vulnerable people transform their lives. The 2018 AWARDS EVENT will be held on Saturday, September 29th, at the Sheraton Stamford Hotel in Stamford, CT. We encourage your attendance and participation at this event. Tickets may be purchased here online. If you know one of these extraordinary women, please visit our website and nominate her for one of our awards at http://sweet-mother.org/  In recent years, Sweet Mother has built classrooms and provided annual scholarships at the FAWE (Forum of African Women Educationalists) Secondary School for Girls in Waterloo Village, Sierra Leone. Many of these girls were kidnapped, brutalized, and raped, during a 10-year war in Sierra Leone. This FAWE School has been a refuge for these girls who have lost everything. Many more children have been orphaned by the Ebola crisis in this part of West Africa and FAWE Sierra Leone has opened another facility to opportune education for these Ebola orphans. This year’s proceeds will also be used for the construction of a boarding home for the Ebola Orphans who lost their parents during this horrible crisis. Sweet Mother has raised funds and awareness of its educational objectives through an annual dinner dance event, The Sweet Mother Awards, which celebrates the outstanding accomplishments and strength of ordinary women who have successfully balanced motherhood, careers, and community service. This platform has created a network of individuals motivated to educate the underprivileged and provided for the exchange of ideas and experiences. In 2017, Sweet Mother, Inc. was able to provide scholarships to the FAWE schools in Waterloo, S.L,, financial support for educating Ebola orphans in Grafton, S.L., and funds to the St. Martin De Pors Academy, a middle school in New Haven, CT.

Featuring a screening of excerpts from the documentary film from Lives in the Balance, The Kids We Lose School-based professionals, classroom teachers, administrators, mental health clinicians, school nurses, and paraprofessionals are increasingly challenged to effectively meet the needs of youths with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges. In schools, tight budgets, high-stakes testing, and Zero Tolerance policies haven't made the task any easier. In clinical settings, these youths can be extremely difficult to work with, engage in treatment, and help. By the time these youths end up in juvenile detention and treatment settings, they are often alienated, disenfranchised, and marginalized and have lost faith in those trying to help them. This conference is about how to start moving things in the right direction, and features cutting-edge interventions and dynamic speakers, including Dr. Tina Payne Bryson, psychologist and New York Times bestselling co-author of The Whole Brain Child and No-Drama Discipline; Dr. Ross Greene, psychologist and New York Times bestselling author of The Explosive Child, Lost at School, Lost & Found, and Raising Human Beings and Founding Director of Lives in the Balance; Dr. Bettina Love, Associate Professor of Educational Theory & Practice at the University of Georgia, whose research focuses on the ways in which urban youth form social, cultural, and political identities; Dr. Mona Delahooke, child psychologist and author of Social & Emotional Development in Early Intervention, and Dr. Laura Rogers, Senior Lecturer and Co-Director of the School Psychology Program at Tufts University. The conference also features a screening of excerpts from the forthcoming documentary film, produced by Lives in the Balance, The Kids We Lose. It's two full days you won't want to miss, filled with invaluable information and practical, innovative ideas and intervention strategies. And you can earn up to 12 CE's!  You can register for both days or just one. But don't miss it! Registration: (8:00 to 8:30) ~ Continental Breakfast Keynote: (8:45 to 10:15) ~ Tina Payne Bryson, PhDNo-Drama Discipline: Based on the ideas from Dr. Bryson's New York Times bestseller No-Drama Discipline (with Dan Siegel), this keynote highlights the link between a child’s neurological development and the way clinicians and educators react to misbehavior, providing an effective, compassionate roadmap for dealing with challenging behavior in the classroom. Defining the true meaning of the “D” word (to instruct, not to shout or reprimand), Dr. Bryson explains how to reach a child, redirect emotions, and turn a meltdown into a teachable moment. By doing so, the cycle of negative behavior (and punishment) is essentially brought to a halt, as problem-solving becomes a win/win situation. Keynote: (10:30 to 12:00) ~ Ross W. Greene, PhDCollaborative & Proactive Solutions: Shifting From Power and Control to Collaboration and Problem-Solving: Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) is the evidence-based model Dr. Greene described his influential books The Explosive Child, Lost at School, Lost & Found, and Raising Human Beings. The CPS model has transformed thinking and practices in countless families, schools, inpatient psychiatry units, and residential and juvenile detention facilities throughout the world, and has been associated with dramatic reductions in adult-child conflict, challenging behaviors, disciplinary referrals, detentions, suspensions, seclusions, and physical, chemical, and mechanical restraints.  The model represents a significant departure from discipline-as-usual:  it focuses on solving problems rather than on modifying behavior, emphasizes collaborative rather than unilateral solutions, encourages proactive rather than reactive intervention, de-emphasizes diagnostic categories, and provides practical, research-based tools for assessment and intervention. LUNCH: (12:00 to 1:00) ~ Lunch Provided BREAKOUTS: (1:00 to 2:30 and 2:30 to 4:15) Teaching the Developing Brain: (First Breakout Session Only) Tina Payne Bryson, PhD                                        Using stories, examples, and lots of humor, Dr. Bryson encourages clinicians and teachers to keep their own developing brains in mind as they nurture their students’ growing minds.  Get the Ball Rolling: Identifying Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems,  Ross W. Greene, Ph.D                      If you want to solve problems collaboratively and proactively with kids, you'll need to identify those problems proactively. In this breakout group, you'll learn how to use the Assessment of Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems (ALSUP), an instrument developed to help clinicians, educators, and caregivers focus their intervention efforts.  When The Educational Goals Didn't Change, Laura Rogers, EdD, and David Aptaker, JD                                    How will the unanimous Supreme Court ruling on the benefits children with disabilities are entitled to under IDEA (Endrew F v Douglas County School District) affect your practices? This session will provide an opportunity to review the significance of the Court’s decision within an historical context. We will discuss how our practices can align with the Court’s determination that for all students with disabilities, "the IEP is reasonably calculated to enable the child to make progress appropriate in light of the child's circumstances.” Participants will receive documentation for attending a NASP-approved workshop of 1.5 hours regarding ethical practice and/or the legal regulation of school psychology. Kids Do Well if They Can (Move)! (Second Breakout Session Only), Greg Santucci, MS OTR                          Active students make better learners. This breakout session will explain sensory processing and how it impacts a student's behavior and learning. Participants will learn about the different sensory systems, sensory "diets," and how to help kids improve their self-regulation skills. Get ready to MOVE and learn practical strategies to implement in clinical settings and classrooms immediately. THE KIDS WE LOSE Screening of Excerpts: (4:30 to 6:00)  Registration: (8:00 to 8:30) ~ Continental Breakfast Keynote: (8:45 to 10:15) ~ Bettina Love, PhDMoving Beyond Survive: A Pedagogy of Mattering: All clients/students have potential that clinicians and educators must nourish, protect, and grow for a better world. Dr. Love’s talk will focus on how innovative civic education, students’ knowledge production and multiple identities, and Hip Hop culture can be cultivated to engage clients/students in the work of fighting for visibility, inclusion, and justice.   Keynote: (10:30 to 12:00) ~ Mona Delahooke, PhDThe Tip of the Iceberg: Looking Beyond Behavior in Helping Behaviorally Challenged Kids: Dr. Delahooke will present a "developmental iceberg" model that describes why challenging behaviors (what we can readily observe in a child) are only the tip of the iceberg, with the causes and triggers often invisible. When we understand the underlying reasons for challenging behaviors, we can provide the correct supports and help build psychological resilience through trusting and engaged relationships. Video-taped examples will provide a compelling argument about the need to shift the lens from a disorder and deficit-based framework to a relationship-based paradigm on the cutting edge of neuroscience, mental health and education. LUNCH: (12:00 to 1:00) ~ Lunch Included BREAKOUTS: (1:00 to 2:30 and 2:30 to 4:15) Get Free: Creativity, Hip Hop Civics Ed, Intersectionality, & Joy, Dr. Bettina Love, PhD                                      Discover a civics curriculum for youth, entitled GET FREE, inspired by the exuberance, ingenuity, political energy, resistance, love, and DIY model of underground Hip Hop. As relevant to clinicians as it is to educators. Solving Behavioral Challenges from the Bottom-Up: A Neurodevelopmental Approach, Mona Delahooke, PhDDr. Delahooke will describe how caregivers and professionals can help bolster basic capacities that lead to successful social problem solving and symbolic reasoning. Video examples will highlight how emotional co-regulation, an appreciation of individual differences, and an understanding of the child’s social and emotional milestones help create a roadmap for interpersonal safety, communication, healing and hope. Stickers Don't Solve Problems, Ross Greene, PhD                                                                                            Learn how to solve problems collaboratively and proactively using the three steps of “Plan B” and see what it looks like in schools. School Refusal:  I’m Not Going to School, Laura Rogers, EdD                                                                              What are the best ways to help clients/students who are refusing to come to school? This breakout will review contemporary research and recommendations for responding to children who are not coming to school. The reasons children do not attend school are varied, and often shift over time, so that whatever first kept a child away may no longer be the primary cause. We will highlight several approaches, focusing on one case study using the principles of Dr. Greene's Collaborative & Proactive Solutions model. Breakout participants will have an opportunity to adapt the intervention model to a situation occurring in their own work. FAQs Can I pay by Purchase Order? Yes, click on the REGISTER button. You will be directed to Payment. Under Payment you can choose what method you would like to use.

In stage 5 or moderately severe cognitive decline occurs such that people have difficulties in completing tasks and people start withdrawing from social activities. Next is the middle dementia where the people tend to forget the recent memory activities. The last stage is that they have no ability to talk or communicate. They completely require human help and care.

Alzheimer’s is a chronic Neurodegenerative disorder. Patient of Alzheimer’s shows early symptoms of short term memory and later progresses to problems in language, disorientation. Causes of Alzheimer’s are not clear yet, but 70% of risks are associated with genetics. There are no existing treatments to reverse or stop Alzheimer’s. Most of patients with alzheimer’s are above 65 years of age but 4-5% cases are of early onset Alzheimer’s. It’s still one of the costly diseases. Separate Alzheimer’s conferences has been arranged to make aware world for its consequences. In 2016, hundreds of conferences has main topic as Alzheimer’s disease as it contributes to 60-70% cases of Dementia. Several countries Governments are taking initiative in Alzheimer’s Congress such as UK, USA, Canada, France having high ratio of deaths due to Alzheimer’s patients and other Dementias.

Brain has one of the richest networks, sudden changes in thinking causes problems in supply of oxygen and nutrients to brain, causes series of minor attacks. Vascular Dementia can’t be tracked until it has series of attacks. Death of brain cells causes problems in memory, thinking and reasoning. There are various types of Vascular Dementia such as Stroke-related Dementia, Post-stroke Dementia, Single-infarct and Multi-infarct Dementia, Sub cortical Dementia. High blood pressure, High blood cholesterol level, Diabetes are some risk factors which majorly contribute to the severity of Vascular Dementia. Vascular Dementia is common type of Dementia after Alzheimer’s disease contributing to nearly 20% cases making it significant in discussions of Dementia conference.

In Lewy body Dementia, disruption among brain cells occur, after one year of observation and progression in symptoms with Parkinson’s disease the diagnosis of Lewy body Dementia is possible. If cognitive problems occur with a year of movement problems doctors declares it as Lewy body Dementia and if not then it is declared as Parkinson’s disease. It is normal kind of Dementia after Alzheimer's illness and having same cases as Vascular Dementia making it critical in interloculation of Dementia meetings.

Spindle neurons have 70% loss in Frontotemporal Dementia patients while other neurons remain unchanged. Temporal lobes have specific function such as right temporal lobe involved in recognition of faces and known objects. Left temporal lobe involved in meaning of names and words of objects. Frontotemporal Dementia includes changes in behavior, personality and difficulty in speech. It is significant cause of Dementia in younger people. MRI scans may show the frontal and temporal lobe atrophy.

It is one of the common Neuro degenerative disorders where the degeneration occurs in the cortex region of the brain. It is also due to the accumulation of amyloid protein in that region. The PCA affected  patients show amyloid plaques and tangles in the neurofibrils. The challenge is that this syndrome shows distinct Neuropsychological deficits still remaining as the complicated forms of Dementia. PCA has been recognized for more than two decades, and yet the condition is almost abandoned by researchers. Hence it is the most suitable topic for discussion in the Dementia conference.

For example, mental health issues such as depression can mimic Dementia. The reason behind development of Dementia is not completely understood in Parkinsons disease patient. Hence this conference will provide a platform to discuss the problem.  Related Conference: World Congress & Expo on Dementia & Neuroscience, November 12-14, 2018, Toronto, Canada | International Dementia Conference, April 16-17, 2018, Dublin, Ireland | International Dementia Conference, June 07-08, 2018, Sydney, Australia | Alzheimer Europe Conference , October 29-31 , 2018, Barcelona, Spain | International Conference on Frontotemporal Dementias, November 11-14, 2018, Sydney, Australia | World Congress on Alzheimer's Disease & Dementia, May 30-31, 2018 Osaka, Japan | World Summit on Alzheimer’s Disease, Neurophysiology and Cognitive Neuroscience, August 31-September 01, 2018, Massachusetts, USA | Related societies: The World Dementia Council | Dementia Australia | Motor Neurone Disease Association | Rare Dementia Support | Association for Frontal Temporal Degeneration | National Stroke Association | Parkinsons Disease Foundation | Session 09: Diseases associated with Dementia The neurological conditions in which the Dementia occurs include some disorders like  Parkinson's disease, Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus, Huntington's disease, and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD). These diseases mimic Dementia or has Dementia as a major sign in the disease. The diseases associated with Dementia have the disease associates that include depression, brain tumors, nutritional deficiencies, head injuries, hydrocephalus, infections (AIDS, meningitis, syphilis), Drug reactions and Thyroid problems. The genetic factors are responsible for the establishment of disorders like Parkinsons disease, Down Syndrome, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus, The other factors for Dementia includes physical factors like head injuries and Traumatic brain injuries.

The numerous neuroepigenetic mechanisms have been involved in several Neurological and Neurodegenerative diseases for the regulation of various epigenetic mechanisms. All the mechanisms in Epigenetics will have a biochemical characteristics such that it helps in regulation process.The basic principle of Neuroepigenetics is that once DNA methylation patterns are established upon the genome in terminally differentiated cells, those modifications are permanent and essentially immutable. Other epigenetic molecular mechanisms are also in play in neurons some are ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling, genomic imprinting , SNF2 chromatin remodeling.

Dementia is progressive in nature; Age is one of the most important risk factor of Dementia, 65years exceeding persons has more chances of having Dementia. Ageing and genetic inheritance from ancestors is beyond control but other risk factors such as Hypertension,  Hyperlipidaemia, Hyperthoiroidism, Alcohol use in large amounts, smoking can be prevented or controlled. Head injury, Stroke or Brain tumor may cause Dementia. Few risk factors can be prevented with healthy lifestyle and proper diet. Causes and risk elements have contributed enormously in Dementia research and discovered new measures in Dementia conferences.

It is reported that there is a very little published data on Epigenomics. It is said that the data are obtained from high through put technologies in screening of human brain. These data intend the upcoming researchers to know and design their experiments. The Data Mining plays an important role in the prediction of the disorder, where the actual data is compared with the real data and the results are interpreted. The Transcriptomics and Proteomics studies has also been carried out providing necessary solutions for the problems.

It is necessary to provide time to Dementia patients to plan future and make them literate about the possible effects in the  future. There are various tests for diagnosing Dementia such as Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE), Mental Score Test, Trail Making Test.  MMSE test include series of exercises in which various problems are checked with memory, speech, ability to respond. Blood test is also done to check levels of vitamin B12 and Thyroid hormones, which may be responsible. Brain scans such as MRI and CT scans used for checking brain tumor and Strokes in Vascular Dementia. Neurology gatherings talked rigorously on Dementia Diagnosis and it is always misleading to different conditions like Parkinson’s' disease. Hence discovery and establishment of  new methodologies and techniques for analysis is in the urge for the Dementia society for dependable diagnosis methods.  Related Conference: International Dementia Conference, June 07-08, 2018, Sydney, Australia | Alzheimer's Association International Conference, July 22-26, 2018, Chicago, USA | International Conference On Alzheimer’s Disease & Dementia, September17-19, 2018, Paris, France | Research Conference 2018, March 20 - 21, London, UK | National Dementia Conference, May 15-16 2018, Melbourne, Australia | Advances and Innovations in Dementia, September 17-18, 2018, Singapore | International Conference on Alzheimer's Disease & Dementia, October 29-31 2018, Valencia, Spain | Related societies: Dementia Society of America | Alzheimer's  Association | Alzheimer's Foundation of America | Alzheimer’s Society-United against dementia | ageUK | Alzheimer Society of Canada | Lewy Body Dementia Association | Session 14: Treatment Modalities Treatment modality is a method that is followed to treat a patient suffering from a disease condition. The treatment modalities have three main approaches ,which include medical, psychological and sociocultural approaches. The most important consideration is that, in practice, no single treatment is considered sufficient for the treatment of Dementia. By now the combination therapy which involves the use of two or more drugs proves to be efficient. The other treatment methods which involve the stem cell therapy and gene therapy has now created the spotlight in the Dementia Treatment. Hence the advanced treatment methods can be discussed in the conference.   Related Conference: World Congress & Expo on Dementia & Neuroscience, November 12-14, 2018, Toronto, Canada | International Dementia Conference, April 16-17, 2018, Dublin, Ireland | International Dementia Conference, June 7-8, 2018, Sydney, Australia | Alzheimer Europe Conference , October 29-31 , 2018, Barcelona, Spain | International Conference on Frontotemporal Dementias, November 11-14, 2018, Sydney, Australia | World Congress on Alzheimer's Disease & Dementia, May 30-31, 2018 Osaka, Japan | World Summit on Alzheimer’s Disease, Neurophysiology and Cognitive Neuroscience, August 31-September 01, 2018, Massachusetts, USA | Related societies: The World Dementia Council | Dementia Australia | Motor Neurone Disease Association | Rare Dementia Support | Association for Frontal Temporal Degeneration | National Stroke Association | Parkinsons Disease Foundation | Session 15: Therapeutic Targets Therapeutic targets are bio molecules maybe a nucleic acid or a protein whose biological activity can be modified by a drug candidate. In some cases of Dementia, it is reported that proteins are the cause for the disease. For example the accumulation of amyloid protein in the regions of Brain acts as a major factor for the disorder, hence it can be a therapeutic target . Therapeutic targets play an important role in identifying the potential drug candidates . Hence the conference provides the discussion sessions to reveal the targets for drug design process.

The most of drugs are in second and third phases.. Most of clinical trials are done in specific areas are amyloid beta plaques, the immune system, tau tangles . New medications for Dementia being developed in 2014/2015, 31% were named symptoms modifying. There are many developments are going on in Drug discovery of Dementia as old treatments are unable to stop the progression of Dementia. Most associations share their exploration on new medications for Dementia in Dementia conferences to get higher esteem to their items. This gets to be distinctly gainful to different geriatric doctors to redesign themselves with such medications and progressing possibilities by going to Dementia conferences. Such Dementia meetings will help researchers to know target areas for Drug development in Dementia and work towards it and also Dementia conferences exhibit clinical trial medications and offers positivity to discover new approaches in curing Dementia Related Conference: International Dementia Conference, June 07-08, 2018, Sydney, Australia | Alzheimer's Association International Conference, July 22-26, 2018, Chicago, USA | International Conference On Alzheimer’s Disease & Dementia, September17-19, 2018, Paris, France | Research Conference 2018, March 20 - 21, London, UK | National Dementia Conference, May 15-16 2018, Melbourne, Australia | Advances and Innovations in Dementia, September 17-18, 2018, Singapore | International Conference on Alzheimer's Disease & Dementia, October 29-31 2018, Valencia, Spain | Related societies: Dementia Society of America | Alzheimer's  Association | Alzheimer's Foundation of America | Alzheimer’s Society-United against dementia | ageUK | Alzheimer Society of Canada | Lewy Body Dementia Association | Session 17: Awareness and Care Practices Dementia is predominant disorder that affects more number of people around the world.  Diagnosis of the patient with Dementia frightens the person affected by the syndrome, their family members and caretakers. Better understanding about public awareness of Dementia aids more effective health and social policies. Dementia patients need assistance and full time care as much as drugs. Some common care practices in Dementia are assistance in food and fluid consumption, pain management, social engagement ensuring safety and security of Dementia patients. Main aim of care practices is to ensure cut in hospitalization and psychotropic drugs. Understanding patient’s mood changes, particular behavior, speech problems and help in rectifying them. Dementia patients need end of life care so qualified nursing staff is needed. Few care practices which are used are indoor and outdoor activities, visual and audio stimulation, Art therapy. Care practices in Dementia have been critical to engage in international Dementia meetings. In need to evolve in Dementia care world gathering and genuine talks on Dementia care is required. The Dementia conference discusses public awareness as well as care practices to achieve higher rate of early diagnosis and to decrease the distress among the patient, family and caregivers.

Each case report distinguishes in conditions such as age, family background, treatment given and effects of it. This all helps to design, categorize the future aspects of disease. Case report will be highly helpful for the researchers to develop new methods for physicians to develop quick diagnosis methods in  Dementia patients. Case reports in Dementia gives some thought regarding diagnosis, treatment and level of cure perhaps conceivable prevention to be taken moreover. Be that as it may, most recognized case reports is to be talked  in the Dementia conference which would be extremely useful to researchers to carry on with their work.

It is stated that, by now there are around 800,000 people in UK with dementia and the numbers are expected to rise to 1,142,677 by 2025 and 2,092,945 by 2051.   It is also reported that around 45 000 people below the age of 65 are suffering from early onset of dementia and 773,502 are in late onset of Dementia. 311,730 (39%) of people living with dementia over 65 are living in care homes (either residential care or nursing homes) and 493,639 (61%) are living in the community among the people.Based on the onset of disease, more people are prone to Dementia in the late onset period. During the late onset period i.e., between the age of 65 to 95* women develop the disease more frequently than men. There are more women patients and victims than men in the late onset case. During the early onset of the disease i.e., between the age group 30-64 men are more prone to the disease than women.   Among the Dementia sub types, Alzheimer’s is the major type contributing to 62% among all the sub types, and amidst the other sub types next ranks the Vascular Dementia which contributes for about 17% of the cases. Next lies the mixed dementia which is ranking third in prevalence. The other sub types which include Dementia with Lewy bodies is found in 4% of people, Frontotemporal dementia in 2%, Parkinson’s dementia in 2%. The other associated diseases with dementia contributes around 3 % of the cases. Dementia with not only ruining the life of people also cause a major impact on the economy in the society. The greater part of the cost spent on Dementia care fall under three main categories health care cost, social care cost, informal care costs. The health care which includes hospitalization and treatment contributes about 16.4% of total cost, the social care which involves the care given by the nursing homes, home care contributes about 39 % of cost and the rest 44.6% comes under the informal care which the given by the family or friends related to the patient. List of Universities carrying out research in Dementia in UK, University of Cambridge Lancaster University University of Worcester Cardiff University University of Leicester University of Sheffield UK Dementia Research Institute University of Stirling Bangor University University of Oxford Both the Government and the Charities help the universities and the Collaborative Research centres to carry out Dementia research in developing novel medicines for dementia. The list of Governmental funding agents, Non-Governmental Organizations and Companies providing funds for Dementia Research in UK includes the following, Alzheimer’s Research UK Medical Research Council (MRC) The Dementia Discovery Fund Alzheimer’s Society UK Department of Health Biogen GSK Johnson and Johnson Lilly Pfizer Takeda Drugs that are available in the market for the treatment of dementia includes Memantine, Donepezil, Rivastigmine, Galantamine. Among these drugs Donepezil is considered as the most effective one, since it has cured dementia in about 59,931 people. It is also reported that about 30,000 people are treated with Rivastigmine. The Memantine ranks third in treating about 14,640 patients, the Galantamine drug cures Dementia in about 10,000 patients.  18 Conference Highlights Dementia Clinical Stages in Dementia Progression Vascular Dementia Alzheimer Disease Dementia with Lewy Body (DLB) Frontotemporal Dementia Recent Advances in Dementia Diagnosis Causes and Risk Factors Bioinformatics Approach Treatment Modalities Therapeutic Targets Clinical Trials and Drug Development Awareness and Care Practices Case Reports Posterior Cortical Atrophy Diseases associated with Dementia Neuroepigenetics Parkinson Disease Dementia To Collaborate Scientific Professionals around the World Conference Date September 24-25, 2018 For Sponsors & Exhibitors Sponsorship Opportunities Speaker Opportunity Poster Opportunity E-Poster Opportunity Supported Journals Please contact the event manager Marilyn (marilyn.b.turner(at)nyeventslist.com ) below for:- Multiple participant discounts- Price quotations or visa invitation letters- Payment by alternate channels (PayPal, check, Western Union, wire transfers etc)- Event sponsorshipsNO REFUNDS ALLOWED ON REGISTRATIONSService fees included in this listing.-----------------------------------------------------------------This event is brought to you by:Pulsus Group - NewYorkEventsListhttp://www.NyEventsList.comhttp://www.BostonEventsList.comhttp://www.SFBayEventsList.com-----------------------------------------------------------------MYL180222CEV MYL180626UPA
