Please join colleagues and experts November 11-12 at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor for this collaborative and informative conference which will bring multi-disciplinary experts together to identify best practices in the clinical management of these unique pediatric patients.
Pediatric renovascular hypertension secondary to renal artery stenosis and abdominal aortic coarctation is exceedingly rare and risks significant morbidity and mortality. The pathophysiology and etiology of both remain poorly defined. Moreover, the low frequency of this disease limits existing data to institutional series and anecdotal case reports.
Building upon our first Symposium that took place in 2019, we will once again bring together distinguished speakers from leading institutions
as well as patients and their families. Together we will highlight best practices in patient care, recent discovery, and ongoing research via collaborative, interactive seminars and group discussions. This 3-day Symposium will dedicate individual days to Scientific presentations, Patient-Centered Outcomes Research, and Patient and Family networking. We encourage you to join us for this collaborative and informative symposium.
The conference is organized by a committee of physicians in the United States, Canada and the UK. It is sponsored by the University of Michigan’s Taubman Institute, which was established in 2007 to support the work of clinician-scientists.
Admission to the conference is free for patient/family members and $150 for clinicians and researchers. We will also try to share presentations virtually and that is free, link will be sent if the person registers for Virtual Attendance. Breakfast, lunch and coffee breaks will be served. Please register at our Eventbrite site to reserve a space and receive periodic conference updates.
All conference sessions will take place at the U-M Kellogg Eye Center, 1000 Wall Street, Ann Arbor, Michigan, 48105.
