Due to the COVID-19 restrictions and concern for the health and safety of the community, the Hypersomnia Foundation is canceling the June 2020 conference in Philadelphia.

“While there is no doubt this is the right decision, and many have lost much more to this pandemic, it’s still difficult to give up one of the few opportunities in our community to meet in person. So many people with IH, narcolepsy and KLS routinely live in a state of lock-down because of their disorder,” says a statement.

“Talking about those experiences with one another is rare itself, and hearing directly from the dedicated researchers and physicians who have made rare sleep disorders the focus of their work is inspiring. We’ll hope for better days when we can meet again.”

Ticket refunds have been processed through EventBrite.

Those who have made reservations through the foundation’s room block at Le Meridien, cancellations can be made by calling Marriott’s central reservation line at 888-236-2427.
