Registration Opens for our Multi-City Mesothelioma Symposium

2016 Symopsium

You can now register to attend the Meso Foundation’s 2016 International Symposium on Malignant Mesothelioma in Houston, San Francisco, and Chicago.

We understand that for many mesothelioma patients and their families, travel can be difficult, and attending a conference at the other end of the country may be prohibitive. With that in mind, we decided to organize three conferences, each featuring top mesothelioma experts, professionally-moderated support sessions, and numerous opportunities for socialization, in three distinct areas of the country.

Each conference will be a one day event starting at 8:30 am and ending around 6:30 pm, including breakfast, lunch, and a cocktail hour, plus coffee breaks throughout the day.

The conference in Houston will be held on May 20, 2016 (REGISTER HERE). Earlybird registration is $50 until April 1. Regular registration is $65. The conference will take place at the Magnolia Hotel Houston at 1100 Texas Ave, Houston, TX 77002 (BOOK A ROOM).

The conference in San Francisco will be held on September 16, 2016 (REGISTER HERE). Earlybird registration is $50 through August 1. Regular registration is $65. The conference will take place at the Hyatt Fisherman’s Wharf at 555 North Point St, San Francisco, CA 94133 (a booking link will be available soon).

The conference in Chicago will be held on October 7, 2016 (REGISTER HERE). Earlybird registration is $50 until September 1. Regular registration is $65. The conference will take place at The Kimpton Gray Hotel at 122 W Monroe St, Chicago, IL 60603 (a booking link will be available soon).
