On Saturday the 2nd of November 2019 we are organising again our global member conference in the Netherlands. On Friday evening we welcome our guests with a welcome drink and snack. 

Apart from a number of main sessions we also organise 9 parallel sessions (3 blocks of 3) and of course the option for a personal medical advice. 

We also intend to share the results of the CMTC genetic research program during our conference!

For children we are organising a series of activities such as crafting, gps treasure hunt in the forest, possibly again the escaperoom and maybe an other activity.

Massages turn out to be a huge success so we are also offering massage again this year (patients first).

We also offer site seeing for our foreign guests if they are interested.

More information will follow.
