The 2012 Patient Care Conference in Florida was a huge success. More families attended than ever before. Speakers discussed the progress in research and new trends in EB care. Families reconnected,  made new friends, and kids had a great time. debra is working hard to make the next PCC even more successful.  We’ve taken your suggestions and added a full day. Talks will start later in the morning and be more spread out, allowing for more socializing. To make it financially easier to plan, we are going to let you pay over time.
