2024 Chordoma Community Day Chicago

Connect, learn, and make an impact

09:00 CDT
76 E Monroe St. Chicago, IL United States

After a wonderful Community Day in Houston, we are now coming to Chicago. Our 2024 Chordoma Community Day series brings connection, learning, empowerment and hope right to your doorstep.

Chordoma Community Day attendees will learn practical tools and strategies for navigating life with chordoma, hear inspiring stories from our community, and have the life-changing opportunity to make lasting friendships with others affected by chordoma who live in your area. You'll also hear about the latest in chordoma research from Dr. Jean-Paul Wolinsky and Dr. Vinai Gondi of Northwestern Medicine, and our Executive Director Josh Sommer will share more about our own CF labs.

We're looking forward to seeing you, expanding and deepening our community ties, and creating a space where everyone affected by chordoma feels supported and included.

(Later this year, we're also stopping in San Diego — sign up for our newsletter for info on that event!)
