Letter from the DIPG/DMG Symposium Planning Committee:

We are excited to invite you to support the 6th DIPG/DMG Symposium that will be held in November 2021. This one-of-a-kind event brings together doctors, researchers, families and foundations to collaborate and work together to advance pediatric brain cancer research. Our unique approach brings together the people doing the research with the people raising the funds to support the research. The results of this approach have shown great advancements in DIPG/DMG research. These efforts have shown positive results in giving children a few more months in their battle but we won’t stop until we find a treatment that can save their life.

The symposium has continued to bring in more and more attendees and your support is vital in the growth of this event. The 2021 DIPG/DMG Symposium will be held on November 4-7, 2021 at the Woodlands Resort in Houston, TX. One of the featured conferences at this family friendly, all-inclusive resort. The conference will include updates from funded research as well as presentations on new potential treatments, delivery methods and more. The networking dinner each night will give attendees an opportunity to connect and collaborative while enjoying dinner. We have seen that some of the best ideas moving research forward come out of the informal setting such as the networking dinner.

We think that not only attendance but also sponsorship of this innovative symposium would be beneficial to your organization and we would be honored to discuss opportunities with you for this partnership.
