Registration is just $135. This includes morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and the evening social event.

Junior medical staff, medical students, nurses and allied health professionals are eligible for a specially discounted rate of just $35.

  • what does the EPISTOP study tell us about the management of TSC?
  • what are the outcomes of the recent research into Cannaboids and TSC?
  • how can we, as health professionals better manage and care for people with TSC in Australia?

Further details about the program will be released very soon.
