Gatherings Sponsored by Nevus Outreach

 

One of the best ways that Nevus Outreach can offer support to people with nevi is to connect them with people who know first-hand what they are going through. Our conferences are a great place to meet other people with nevi, but they only happen every other year.

Since the fall of 2006, nevus families and other supporters have been organizing regional gatherings throughout the country. These events are an excellent way for people to network between conferences, and for people who cannot attend conferences to meet others with a nevus.

What do you do at a Nevus Gathering?

We eat, we talk, we play. We share. The important thing is just being with others who know what you’re going through and can share your experiences. This can pretty much take place anywhere.

We’ve had Nevus Gatherings at the zoo, at water parks, at a beach house, in restaurants, at hotels, and certainly many are just big meals together in peoples’ homes.

How can we have one near me?

If you are interested in holding or attending a Nevus Gathering, put the word out in our Facebook Group.

Other Ways to Get Involved

One of the best ways to connect with other nevus families is to attend a Nevus Conference. Held every other year, the conference is the largest gathering of nevus owners in the world and a fantastic way to meet other members of the community. While Nevus Gatherings and the Nevus Conference are wonderful, we also know that day-to-day support is important as well. That's why we offer The Nevus Outreach Facebook Group to connect you with other nevus families around the world who can answer your questions and offer encouragement.
