      Galt House East, Louisville, Kentucky
      Phone: (502) 589-5200 Attn: Mae Kirk

      The Seventh Annual NGDF Family/Patient Conference will feature a
      multi-disciplined team of speakers, including Dr. M. Douglas Gossman
      (Graves’ Eye Disease), Dr. Ora Frankle (Psychiatry), Dr. Sally Lister
      (Psychology), Dr. Phillip Morrow (Endocrinology), Dr. Terry Hinkle
      (Cardiology), Dr. John Davidson (Dermatology), and David Bos
      (Family group facilitator). Other speakers and sponsors will be
      announced as they are confirmed.

      The hotel, The Galt House East, is selected for both its fine facilities,
      Southern grace and charm, and convenience. All rooms are suites, meaning
      they have a sitting room, wet bar and separate sleeping room and bath.
      There are only a limited number of rooms reserved at the special
      conference rate of $89.00 (single or double), plus tax. PLEASE REGISTER
      EARLY. Special conference rates are extended for three days prior to,
      and after, the conference.

      The hotel is right by the Ohio River. There will be a dinner cruise on
      the ” Spirit of Jefferson” Saturday night. The meeting rooms are large,
      and the halls have couches lined up and they can be moved into clusters
      for casual chatting and visiting. The Galleria is four blocks away for
      your shopping pleasure. There is an art gallery, The Bat Museum, and The
      Kentucky Derby Museum within two blocks.

      The first program will begin at 3:00 Friday afternoon, and the Welcome
      Banquet, sponsored by Bausch & Lomb, is scheduled for Friday Night.
      We will meet (with plenty of breaks, as well as lunch) from 8:00 until
      2:30 on Saturday, with the afternoon free for whatever you choose.
      Sunday’s meetings will be from 8:30 until 2:30, and you may plan your
      departure accordingly. Louisville is reported to be within an eight hour
      drive for more than half the United States.
