Family Weekends

Members of the New England Consortium of Metabolic Programs organize family weekends throughout the New England area for kids and teens with metabolic disorders, and for their families.

These weekend events are a chance for patients and families to get together for fun, self-esteem-building activities, and to share information and support.
