Weather Conditions in Cincinnati
The weather in Cincinnati in September is wonderful. It’s typically sunny and warm with temperatures between 75 and 85 degrees. The RLDC•2016•LAMposium will take place in a conference center, which can get chilly. Dress in comfortable clothes and bring along a sweater or jacket.
If you need supplemental oxygen, be sure to request your oxygen to be delivered to the hotel on the day you arrive.
The address for the hotel is:
Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter
10 Rivercenter Blvd.
Covington, KY 41011
Bluegrass Oxygen will supply back up E Tanks for those who need additional oxygen while at the conference. Please remember to bring your oxygen prescription with you; this will not be a full-time manned oxygen refill station. If you anticipate additional needs, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible so we can make accommodations for you.
Bring Your Yoga Mat
If you can, bring along your yoga mat. Kat Steele will lead us in three yoga sessions this weekend. Each session will begin at 7:00am in the Kentucky Room at the Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter. If you cannot travel with your yoga mat, borrow a towel from the hotel. Space is limited, so if you want to participate, arrive early and grab your spot on the floor.
Plan to stick around on Sunday morning after breakfast. RLDC Co-chairs, William Parks, PhD and Robert Kotloff, MD will summarize the Friday and Saturday sessions with the researchers and clinicians. This is a wonderful time to learn about the exciting new research discussed within these two days and how research is advancing toward a cure for LAM.
