The 8th International Congenital CMV Conference & 18th International CMV Workshop will take place virtually from Monday 28th March – Friday 1st April, with a full programme of invited speakers, oral paper presentations, poster sessions and panel discussions. Further information about the conference can be found here: www.cmv2022.org
On the afternoon of Sunday 27th March, there will be a fascinating two-hour session on Zoom specifically aimed at the general public, featuring updates on aspects of CMV that everyone would like to know more about. This will encompass brief talks from experts in the field, followed by a panel discussion where speakers will answer questions from the general public.
Update: Public zoom session now available to view here on Youtube
Registration for the two-hour session is free, so it would be great for as many of our members and supporters to attend as possible. To see the full programme and register to attend, please go to www.cmv2022.org/public-session In addition to members of the public, attendees to the CMV workshop are being strongly encouraged to come along so it is a great opportunity to speak directly to students and medics. We really hope to see you there!
CMV Action have been asked to give a presentation on the impact of CMV on children and families and how to prevent transmission of CMV during pregnancy. This is where you can help us! We feel it would be really effective to involve families by giving first hand accounts of their experiences of CMV and the challenges you have faced when a child is affected by the virus (good and bad).
What has the impact of CMV been on your family?
To help us in representing our CMV families at the general public session at CMV2022 we would like to include statements describing how a diagnosis of congenital CMV (cCMV) has affected your family. These will then be used during a presentation CMV Action will be giving on the afternoon of Sunday, 27th March.
If you are able to help us, please submit a short quote describing the impact cCMV has had on you, your child or your family. One or two sentences is all we need and we will collate these to graphically illustrate what effect the virus has had, to the members of the general public and medics who will be present.
We would really appreciate your help with this, so if you would like to help us by taking part, please email your comments by March 4th to firstname.lastname@example.org.
