Wink MDS foundation conference in Atlanta

My husband and I have registered and planning to attend this conference in Atlanta, April 20! I was diagnosed just about 4 years ago and have learned a lot from MDS foundation and AA/MDS webinars and, especially this site. But, this is the first conference that I will be attending, mainly to meet other people, possibly hook up with others from this site that may be attending!
