    Hey everyone!

    I've been thinking about attending the NPKUA conference in Dallas in January, and if I did go I would probably be on my own so I'd like to know, is anyone else going?  I've actually never been to a PKU conference before so I'm really hoping I am able to attend!

    Hi Emily!

    You should definitely go! I am pretty sure Katie Maguire will be there, and if everything goes according to plan I will be there with my older brother (non PKU).

    I have gone to the Winter Splash PKU conference in Sheboygan, Wisconsin and the Culinary Cooking conference in Denver, Colorado. They were both very fun and very informative.

    Hope to see you there!

    Emily,

    I will be there.  I went last year for the first time, and it was amazing!  I highly recommend you go.  I also met Breanna in Denver.  You will meet many other people of all ages.  I most likely will be there on my own too… don't let that hold you back!! :)

    Can someone tell me what this conference is about and where to find details? This is the first I've heard of it.

    If you would like more information for the High Hopes Conference go to npkua.org, and there is a link that says High Hopes Inaugural Conference. It is in Dallas, Texas on January 15th-17, and it sounds very promising!

    I am sure she will have loads of fun! I wish I could have brought my eleven year old sister who also has PKU, but my parents didn't want her flying all the way to Texas without them. Oh well maybe when she gets a little bit older we can have tons of fun going to PKU events together :).
