The theme for the 2019 MTM-CNM Family Conference is " Through the Gateway: Expanding Possibilities "! Inspired by the iconic Gateway Arch that marks St. Louis as the "Gateway to the West", we reflect on our own Gateway Moments and how our lives are changed as we enter a new world. These moments - getting a rare disease diagnosis, celebrating an unexpected accomplishment, mourning a loss, achieving a scientific breakthrough - can be powerful in shaping who we are as individuals and as a community. We don't really know what is on the other side of the gateway until we get there, though we may have heard stories from those who have gone ahead - perhaps sharing some hopes and dreams, perhaps some fears and worries. But we do know that life will be different, and the possibilities of what the future may bring are expanding! As an MTM-CNM Family, let's take a moment to look around this new landscape and step forward together... See You In St. Lou!
