F.E.A.S.T. conference November 3 & 4 in Alexandria, Virginia - be here!

It's done! F.E.A.S.T. has a date and a place and will begin registration soon for our first international event!

Historic Old Town Alexandria is gorgeous, fun, and easily accessible by air, rail, and car. It's a great place to walk, bike - and it seems everyone is walking a dog! It's a quick metro ride across the Potomac to Washington DC and we've negotiated reduced hotel rates that will extend before or after the conference for anyone who wants to make a holiday of it.

Here are your dates: November 3 & 4, 2011. The closest airport is Reagan National (DCA) and there's a free shuttle. Dulles airport is only 40 miles away, and SuperShuttles are available for $30 or so. Taking a train: Alexandria is just outside Washington.

I really want to see you there. We need to do this - come together to discuss what caregivers can DO to improve the treatment environment, influence policy and research and public opinion. We have a WONDERFUL keynote speaker, Dr. Thomas Insel from the NIMH, plus others for two days of speakers, panels, and discussion groups. We have AMAZING people coming from all over the world.

Registration starts soon - details to follow - I'm SO EXCITED!

  3. Excuse me!
    Could you make this any more inviting?
    A bunch of fabulous people who are passionate about evidenced based treatment, at a gorgeous location. I am so sad I can't come...but a daughter in the middle of her final exam week of school, means I am staying put. Maybe next time.

    It looks very exciting. Sigh....sniff, sob.

  5. Louie - join me in doing this "virtually" - I'm really keen that those of us who can't be there in person get to join in the fun from where we are thanks to the power of the Internet. By November it's going to be damp and dark around here so I intend to watch from the comfort of my sofa. Book a duvet day or three now.
