In 2019, we all left Baltimore, Maryland thinking we’d hug each other once again in 2020, but we all know what happened next…COVID-19 destroyed all plans for an in-person event in both 2020 and 2021. Although both events, virtual and hybrid, were a huge success, nothing can replace the magic of being in the same room with other families and the clinicians, researchers, and industry partners fighting for our community.
So, after three long years, TCSF’s community traveled distances near and far to attend the 8th Annual SCN8A Clinician, Researcher, and Family Gathering as an in-person event in Nashville, Tennessee! There was a very large presence of families this year and TCSF was thrilled to cover all travel and lodging costs for all 19 families that applied for the Dr. Mandy Harris Family Travel Grant program! The festivities began the afternoon of Friday, December 1st and continued until late in the afternoon on Saturday, December 2nd.
