Retreat for Adults with FA

Save the Date for the 2023 Retreat for Adults with FA

We hope you will join us in Vancouver BC, Canada from September 28 - October 1, 2023! Registration for the event will be open from June 15 - August 15, 2023. 

What is the Retreat for Adults with FA?

The Retreat for Adults with FA takes place every fall in a different city. It’s an opportunity for individuals with FA ages 18+ to meet other adults with FA, learn about medical and research updates, attend support sessions, and participate in voluntary research studies. We are excited to continue providing education and support sessions for caregivers.

Scientific Symposium

This retreat is held in conjunction with FARF’s annual Scientific Symposium. Attendees from both meetings share meals together, including the annual banquet dinner. Adult Retreat attendees are welcome to attend Symposium sessions as well.

NEW! Limited hybrid option
We encourage attendees to come in person to fully experience the Adult Retreat and mingle with fellow attendees! However, we know this is not always possible, so for the first time, the Adult Retreat will include a virtual component! Only select educational sessions will be live streamed. To see the sessions that will be broadcast for virtual attendees, please view the agenda and filter to see which sessions are tagged "virtual." Virtual sessions will be a one-way stream only, meaning participant interaction will be limited to submitting questions through chat. More information about virtual attendance will be available this summer.
