A conference about twins, but where are the womb twin survivors?

This conference will doubtless ignore the psychological effects on the survivors of multifetal pregnancy reduction.

Double Take: Twins in Genetics and Fertility Treatment

Progress Educational Trust
Institute of Child Health, University College London, 30 Guilford Street, London WC1N 1EH
04 December 2013

The 2013 annual conference of the Progress Educational Trust (PET), supported by an unrestricted educational grant from Merck Serono (gold sponsor) and also supported by Ferring Pharmaceuticals and the Medical Research Council (bronze sponsors). The conference will address twins, multiple pregnancies and multiple births in relation to genetics, fertility treatment and early development. Confirmed speakers and chairs include George Atakos, Dr Jordana Bell, Professor Sir John Burn, Rachel Cutting, Jane Denton, Jane Fisher, Professor John Galloway, Dr Nicky Hudson, Dr Jane Hurst, Dr Yacoub Khalaf, James Lawford Davies, Sarah Norcross, Professor Marcus Pembrey, Professor Robert Plomin and Mohammed Taranissi. Further speakers will be added to this page as they are confirmed.
Who is going to go along to events such as this and make sure the voice of womb twin survivors is heard? Althea has retired now- who will our new evangelists?

It could be YOU!
