Join SBA of Michigan for its 2017 Education Day on Saturday, September 16th at North Star Reach. This one day mini-conference is designed to deliver important information from experts in the field to all those touched by Spina Bifida. Topics covered generally include neurosurgery, orthopedics, learning and education, patient advocacy, bladder & bowel management, transitioning to and maintaining independence, and more. The agenda is now available here

The nominal registration fee includes access to all sessions, the exhibit area, breakfast, lunch provided by Hell Hole Diner, and refreshements following the closing remarks. We are confirmed for a limited amount of on-site kids camp. All kids camp attendance must be pre-paid. Day-of registration will be open on an "as-available" basis, and the price will increase to $50 per person. We recommend you take advantage of the early-bird pricing and register in advance!


1. Can children attend this event?
Kids camp is available on-site available for children 0-16. Kids camp attendance will only be available for those who pre-register. So please be sure to register your child ahead of time. Ages 17 and older are invited to register and attend the education day.

3. Is it better to pre-register for this event?
We encourage you to pre-register online for several reasons: 

  • Enjoy Early Bird Pricing! Advanced registration is just $45. Day-of registration increases to $50. 
  • Enter to Win! Everyone who preregisters online by September 13th will be eligible to win an SBA Prize Pack (available at check-in the day of the event).
  • Reserve Your Seat! Day-of registration is limited, so by registering in advance, you're guaranteed admission to this educational event PLUS networking opportunities to connect with others in our community! 
  • Save Time! When you register in advance, check-in is a breeze the day of the event.
  • Earn a Referral Prize! Share the event details with a friend and have them enter your name in the registration form. You'll receive a special goodie from SBA for each friend you refer

Day-of registration will be open on an "as available" basis until seats are filled. Day-of registration is $50 per person.

6. How do I get to North Star Reach?
Please download directions to North Star Reach here, as it can be a little hard to find. 


7. When can I meet other families or individuals affected by SB?
This event is designed to be a great forum for both educaion and  networking! Arrive early to meet with other attendees and vendors during the check-in hour, catch up on breaks between sessions or during breakfast/registration, lunch, and plan to stick around for refreshments immediately following the closing remarks – so many great opportunities to network with other adults, parents, providers, and advocates!
