Nevus Outreach International Conferences
Our organization hosts the Nevus Outreach International Conference and Reunion every two years. Since the first gathering in 1998, people with a nevus, family members, psychosocial experts and medical professionals from around the world have attended this life-changing event. These meetings offer a chance for people to forge relationships and get current medical information. Why "and Reunion?" Because many people return year after year to reconnect with old friends, meet new friends as the nevus family expands.
