Throwback Tuesday – who says we have to wait until Thursday if we want to do it now.

Last July we held the 16th NFXF International Fragile X Conference in Cincinnati, Ohio. Over 168 sessions and posters were presented over several days on a range of subjects. You can watch all of the main hall sessions here.

At kind of the last minute, we decided to stream the session with male self-advocates to Facebook Live during the Conference. It was a great session – very inspiring to see these young men work hard and talk about their lives, their struggles, their dreams, etc. to a group of parents, grandparents, friends, peers, doctors, etc. Over 12,000 people saw the video on Facebook at the time.

If you missed it – or want to watch it again or for the 5th time – you can now see it here.

Make sure to save the date for the 17th NFXF International Fragile X Conference, July 16-19, 2020 in Orlando, Florida. We hope to see you there (and next time we will make sure we have enough hands and cameras to also film the female self-advocates’ panel).
