The NODCC hosts a biennial international conference to educate and connect those living with a disorder of the corpus callosum and their loved ones, family, and friends. The conference features 40+ sessions led by professionals with experience with DCC and/or special needs topics. The event also includes researches who are studying callosal disorders or the wiring of the brain.
Statement on 2021 DCC Conference
Due to the continued health concerns and government regulations with COVID-19, the NODCC has made the difficult decision to postpone the 2021 DCC Conference to 2022. We are disappointed to again move this event (that was originally scheduled in 2020), but the safety requirements would greatly affect the operations, attendee capacity and experience of the conference.
We have been working with the hotel and are planning for the dates of July 1-3, 2022. If you prepaid for conference registration, you will be contacted to receive a refund or to defer to 2022.
In the meantime, we will continue our virtual gatherings via Zoom for parents, adults living with a DCC, siblings, regional communities, etc. in addition to hosting new virtual events. The Board of Directors and Community Committee will begin exploring the possibility of smaller, in-person events across the U.S. in 2021 in accordance with city and state regulations and guidelines. Please let us know if you are interested in hosting or having a gathering in your area, and we will work to determine the locations and feasibility of these events. We also welcome input on virtual events and topics for 2021.
We greatly miss our NODCC family and the hugs, smiles, answers, and comfort that our conference brings to so many people. We hope you will continue to support our virtual events and connect with individuals and families who need encouragement and support.
Our next DCC Conference is:
July 1-3, 2022
Embassy Suites by Hilton Dallas
Frisco Hotel Convention Center & Spa
7600 John Q. Hammons Drive
Frisco, Texas 75034
Gatherings, events, and fundraisers in local communities are hosted by families and individuals. These events are a great way to connect with people who live close or in the same region. The NODCC support and promote these events, but local families host and coordinate the events.
