The Quebec parent association (GAETQ) is organizing an international conference on Tyrosinemia. The objective is to share and update our knowledge regarding this disease and its impacts on the medical world. Tyrosinemia was identified fifty years ago and used to greatly diminish the life expectancy of children affected. Now the disease is well controlled, thanks to NTBC.
Several cases were diagnosed in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region. Even if the quality of life of patients has drastically improved, some issues related to the treatment have not been adressed. In this context, we invite researchers, health professionals, and families to be part of the Tyrosinemia 2015 International Conference. A plethora of topics related to the disease will be discussed. This event will gather participants from across the world and will be held in Saguenay, Quebec, Canada from September 24th to the 26th, 2015.
As a major partner, the GAETQ wishes to invite you to this great event.
Gérard Tremblay, president
