THANK YOU FOR REGISTERING

Our team at REACH is always committed to improving the lives of children and families affected by Hirschsprung Disease by increasing awareness, promoting education, connecting families, and supporting various research around the world.

We are so excited that this September is the 7th year of the all Hirschsprung's symposium. The day is catered to HD families and doctors to continue to educate and raise awareness for Hirschsprung Disease. We've travelled all across North America to different cities each year, and we are very much looking forward to working with Texas Children's Hospital, Dr. Timothy Lee, and his amazing team this fall.

Our LIVE STREAM is being sponsored by Bolder Surgical from Colorado. Bolder Surgical™ was founded to revolutionize minimally invasive surgery in children by providing right-sized instruments that improve access and visibility in the tiniest patients. Bolder Surgical™ is the first and only company to secure FDA clearance for a low-power electrosurgical device, the 3mm Vessel Sealer, used specifically for pediatric patients. The Company also developed the worlds first 5mm Mechanical Stapler with a pediatric indication.
