Kids with HPS to learn circus tricks

Jan 17, 2018

Kids may dream about running away to be in the circus, but kids from the Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome (HPS) community will get to learn some circus skills at the 25th Annual HPS Network Conference, to be held March 9 – 11, 2018 at the Long Island Marriott in Uniondale, N.Y. A team from the National Circus Project will be on hand at the kids’ portion of the conference to teach them various circus skills such as juggling and rope tricks.

The kids program includes children with HPS, as well as the kids of adults with HPS or kids of physicians presenting at the conference.

The HPS Network Conference is an annual event that brings together families affected by HPS for support, education, research updates and fun!
