2016 Annual Conference

2016 CONFERENCE INFORMATION

We’re pleased to announce PSC Partners Seeking a Cure’s 12th annual conference for PSCers and caregivers  which will take place in New Haven Connecticut from June 24-26, 2016. The conference will be held at the Omni New Haven in conjunction with the Yale Liver Center and Yale School of Medicine.

The conference officially starts Friday morning (June 24th) at 9:00am and ends Sunday at 1:00pm.  Sunday morning will be a joint session of our attendees with the IPSCSG (International PSC Study Group) physicians, followed by group peer sesssions which are always a highlight.  Please consider arriving early to join us at our casual get acquainted dinner on Thursday evening.

In 2016, we have changed the timing of our annual conference from our traditional spring time date to late June 2016 to take advantage of a unique opportunity for PSC Partners to hold our conference back to back with the first U.S. meeting of the International PSC Study Group (IPSCSG). The IPSCSG is a group of the top PSC researchers and hepatologists from 17 countries whose aim is to coordinate PSC research projects between leading institutions worldwide. The IPSCSG meeting starting Sunday at 10:30 a.m. is restricted to hepatologists and researchers.

Please consider becoming a 2016 conference sponsor!

We rely upon the generous support of our community and corporate sponsors to help make the conference as affordable as possible for conference attendees.

How to Become a Conference Sponsor: We are still in the process of looking for community and corporate conference sponsors, so if you are interested in becoming a sponsor or if you know someone whom we should contact, please email us at contactus@pscpartners.org.  For a list of the community sponsorship opportunities, please click here, and for corporate sponsorship opportunities, please click here.

IMPORTANT HOTEL INFORMATION

The 2016 PSC Partners Conference begins on the morning of Friday June 24, and will take place at the Omni New Haven Hotel at Yale, 155 Temple St., New Haven CT 06510, (203) 772-6664. The Omni is located in downtown New Haven, CT surrounded by the beauty of Yale University’s campus. We hope that you will consider arriving in New Haven on Thursday, 6/23/16 early enough to join us at our Thursday evening informal meet and greet dinner.

We are pleased to offer a discounted group rate for conference attendees! This year, for the nights of Thursday, June 23, Friday, June 24 and Saturday, June 25, PSC Partners Seeking a Cure will subsidize $19 per guest room per night for conference attendees staying at the Omni. When you reserve online for these dates, the group room rate of $139.00 per night will appear on your confirmation email. This group rate does NOT reflect the additional $19 subsidy provided by PSC Partners – you will see the subsidy on your final room bill after your stay, but you will not see the $19 subsidy when you make your reservation.

The Omni New Haven has set up a personalized group page for conference attendees to reserve their hotel rooms. To take advantage of our special group rate and subsidy, please click HERE. If additional reservation assistance is needed, please call (203) 772-6664.

If you would like to extend your stay before or after the conference, the PSC Partners $139 group rate will be available for conference attendees from June 20-27, 2016 This discounted group rate of $139 per night is guaranteed until the group block of rooms is filled or by the deadline of May 31, 2016, whichever comes first. After May 31st, the discounted group rate will only be offered depending on availability and prevailing rates, so it is strongly advised that you make reservations as soon as possible to take advantage of the group rate.

Although the group rate of $139 is available from June 20-27, 2016, the additional $19 subsidy per night is only available on the nights of June 23, 24 & 25. We always try to minimize the cost of conference attendance for patients and caregivers, which is why the $19 subsidy is available for the nights of the conference. For these three nights, the cost of your room will be $120.00 per night, plus taxes and fees.
