The 2015 Hair Congress is taking place in Miami this year from Nov. 18 - 21. Last year we successfuly raised enough funds to send Desmond84 from BaldTruthTalk forum and record the presentations and share them with the entire community. Let's do it again!
This year's congress will have the following key speakers:
Dr. Angela M. Christiano
Dr. Sarah E. Millar
Dr. George Cotsarelis
Dr. Ken Washenik
Dr. Takashi Tsuji
Dr. Rolf Hoffman
Dr. Gail Naughton
Dr. Roland Lauster's Team
As you can see this is going to be a pretty significant congress as it will have all the top researchers. I'll be getting in touch with as many of these doctors as possible for a 1-on-1 interview as well taking questions from the forums to ask on your behalf. For discussion about the congress , take part in the following link:
Once I'm at the congress I'll be posting daily updates in the forums to keep everyone up to speed with my findings.
Funds raised will cover the costs of the flight, hotel (4-5 nights) and the entrance to the congress which is $850 USD. I've already gone out and bought a small camera to record the sessions, a Canon S120 and am willing to pitch in a little more myself. I'm still looking into buying a free-standing monopod, a clamp-mount to attach to a chair (I'll need to be discrete about video recording) lots of extra batteries (video recording drains things fast) and a couple extra SD cards (video takes up a lot of space) as well as an external battery pack to keep my phone charged for recording audio.
Funds are in Canadian dollars ($1 CAD = $0.75 USD) so yeah, the exchange rate SUCKS.
Thank you to everyone for your support!
