9th World Rett Syndrome Congress

Surfers Paradise, QLD - AustraliaSep-30-202009:00 am

The Rett Syndrome Association of Australia (RSAA)email rettaust@bigpond.comwishes to draw attention to the fact that it is staging the 9th World Rett Syndrome Congress in Surfers Paradise, Australia, from 30 Sept to 3 Oct 2020. What with the distances involved in getting to and from Australia, the time that it takes and the expense, RSAA, in the past, has been very reluctant to stage a World Congress. We appreciate that for those who live overseas and wish to attend, it is a considerable effort for them to do so. Maybe incorporating attendance at the World Congress while holidaying in Australia, could be an option. We have created a Congress website at http://rettworldcongress.org to which information that you will need to know, will be added progressively. Our Association views the occasion as being an event for all those involved with Rett syndrome, be they scientists or not, be they attending or not, regardless of where they are located in the world.
