CLOVES Syndrome Community is hosting our sixth Family Conference virtually on August 6 and 7, 2021. We are offering a diverse day of conference programming to connect, inspire and educate people with CLOVES and their families.
This information is shared with you as part of our invitation to attend or support our conference as a sponsor or a exhibitor. Our conference attendees will be primarily people with CLOVES and their families, as well as medical and related professional providers who work with people in the CLOVES community. It is our hope to build lasting relationships with our conference sponsors and vendors.
OUR PROGRAM FOR 2021
Opening Keynote Speaker is Rick Guidotti of Positive Exposure
Rick Guidotti is an award-winning photographer, who founded Positive Exposure in 1997 after a chance encounter in 1997 with a young lady living with albinism at a bus stop in New York City. As an artist, Rick was taken by her extraordinary beauty. In a quest for a better understanding of albinism, Rick sought out medical textbooks, where he was affronted by the dehumanizing images depicting disease, lacking all humanity.
Rick has since spent more than twenty years collaborating internationally with advocacy organizations/NGOs, medical schools, universities and other educational institutions to effect a sea-change in societal attitudes towards individuals living with genetic, physical, behavioral or intellectual difference.
