FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
What is the format for the conference?
The conference itself (educational sessions) is 1.5 days long; it begins on Saturday morning and concludes on Sunday afternoon. There is also a welcome reception planned for Friday evening before the conference begins. All educational sessions will take place in the same room with back-to-back speakers followed by Q & A panels; this way, attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions. Breakfast and lunch is included on both days and a dinner for attendees on Saturday night is provided as well.
What is the dress code?
Most attendees will feel comfortable wearing casual clothing or business-casual clothing. The conference center is air conditioned, so please be sure to bring a sweater in case you get cold. Outside temperatures in Orlando are typically very warm with temperatures in the 80s - 90s during the day. Please pack accordingly.
My child is on the ketogenic diet. Will they be accommodated?
We cannot guarantee that the hotel can accommodate an exact ketogenic diet but we will try out best to work with the hotel to ensure a variety of options are available. Each room has a refrigerator, so we recommend packing keto-friendly snacks and bringing them with you.
Is there an additional charge for more than two people in a room?
The rate of $229 is based on a maximum of two adults per room. There is a maximum capacity of four per room. Additional adults are charged a fee of $25 per person per night. Children under the age of 18 are not charged this fee.
Are the registration fees refundable?
Unfortuantely, we are unable to refund registration fees once they are processed.
Who will be attending the meeting?
We expect the conference to be comprised of CHD2 family members and caregivers, as well as scientists / researchers, industry professionals, and advocacy representatives.
I can't attend in person. Can I still view the sessions?
Yes! A virtual option will be available who cannot attend the conference in person.
Is financial aid available to help me attend in person?
Scholarships will be offered to CHD2 families to help offset costs of registration fees and hotel accommodations (up to two nights). The application to apply for a scholarship will open early 2023.
Are meals included?
Breakfast and lunch on Saturday and Sunday as well as a dinner on Saturday evening are included. A light reception will also be offered Friday evening.
