The turnout for our 2016 Conference was phenomenal ~ we had over 300, our highest ever for the FOD Group and OAA! THANK YOU to our major sponsors The Metabolic Clinic at Children’s Hospital Colorado and University of Colorado School of Medicineand ALL of our Sponsors! 

Our Speakers shared their expertise and knowledge of FODs and related medical, psychological, nutritional, family, educational, and newborn screening issues. Families came away from the Conference with ALOT to think about, as well as the opportunity to connect with other Families around the world dealing with many similar issues. They also had many opportunities to speak with our Professionals one-on-one and ask them a variety of questions.
