The 2016 ULF Annual Family Conference and Scientific Symposium was held at the Embassy Suites Downtown/Old Market in Omaha July 28-30. It brought together families and medical professionals across all of the leukodystrophies to learn, share, and connect. There were great topics and speakers, new event features, roundtable discussions, the memorial ceremony, silent and live auctions, and an award ceremony,
Dr. Reuben Matalon received the 2016 ULF Service Award for his decades-long involvement with leukodystrophy research and therapies and his commitment to the United Leukodystrophy Foundation.
Children enjoyed many activities, including a field trip to the Omaha Children’s Museum. A fabulous wrap-up dinner celebration for all attendees was held at Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium.
