Why attend?

When you or a loved one are dealing with chordoma, you face a unique set of challenges. But you don’t have to face them alone. Our community conferences can help arm you with the resources and skills you need to navigate them. Since 2015, we have hosted regional conferences in partnership with a number of leading medical centers across the United States and Europe to bring the latest updates in chordoma research and care to patients and caregivers in their own communities. Whether you are a patient, survivor, caregiver, or loved one, Chordoma Community Conferences bring our community together to:

  • learn about the latest advances in chordoma research and treatment
  • connect with others whose experiences are similar
  • understand the many ways we can work together to achieve a better future for those affected by chordoma

If you have any questions about the conference, please don’t hesitate to email us at
