June 2017 Advocacy Day and Schizophrenia Symposium
In June of 2017, we hope to repeat our successful and informative mixer and dinner in Baltimore in conjunction with Johns Hopkins Schizophrenia Symposium. Johns Hopkins has postponed the SZ Symposium until June, 2017. Pre-register for events and be the first to get news on dates, hotels, and small group conferences. The events held in November, 2015 were fantastic and they will definitely sell out in 2017! Be the first to get updates and a seat at both the mixer, dinner!
