Mast Cell Disorder Support Network

Annual TMS Conference


#1

The TMS has unanimously voted to beta test live streaming their conference physician speakers! That means, you can watch the main sessions of our conference from the comfort of your own home or workplace. Physician speakers will be streamed, excluding sessions with unpublished research (Dr. Milner) and breakout sessions. In future years, there will likely be a charge for this same experience.

Because we are Beta testing, this year, we will stream the sessions live on the TMS Facebook page. Just log into Facebook and visit this page. Once the live stream has started, join by pressing the arrow on the post. Join the page prior to the conference date to ensure you have access. Moderators may not be quick to add people during the conference (they are attending the conference!)
