The Foundation for Prader-Willi Research was established in 2003 by a small group of parents who saw the need to foster research that would help their children with Prader-Willi syndrome lead more healthy and fulfilling lives. Today, FPWR is composed of hundreds of parents, family members, researchers, and others who want to find treatments and a cure for PWS and SYS.
ATTEND OUR ANNUAL CONFERENCE
FPWR's conference is held annually on the last weekend of September or the first weekend of October. The event brings together the world's leading scientists in the field of PWS for two days of sharing and collaboration at our PWS Research Symposium, followed by our two-day Family Conference with research topics and workshops to help families manage the challenges of PWS.
