Every two years, AXYS sponsors a conference that brings together those with an extra X or Y chromosome variation, their parents or other family members, researchers, medical professionals and others. The conference features individual presentations, panel discussions, and plentiful opportunity for informal discussion and support on a wide range of matters relevant to our members and friends. Much of the material is of a timeless nature that can be highly informative and helpful to those new to the field.
