2010 Nail Patella Syndrome Worldwide Conference

Homewood Suites by Hilton

Columbia, MD



We are pleased and excited to announce this year’s conference to be held in Columbia, MD from August 13th to 15th. Columbia is not far from our nation’s capital, so plan to stay longer and take in some of the incredible sightseeing this area has to offer.


Plan to arrive early on Friday, August 13th for our traditional “meet and greet”. We will be holding this poolside and will serve hamburgers and hotdogs. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet others attending the conference or to get re-acquainted with old friends.


The following day will be a one-day program. This will consist of presentations by various doctors very familiar with Nail Patella Syndrome.
