The 2006 Interstitial Cystitis and Painful Bladder Syndrome On-Line Patient Conference, the only FREE lecture series available to interstitial cystitis and painful bladder patients on the web. Why a web based conference?? Of the 100,000 plus IC patients estimated to be diagnosed with IC in the United States, at best, only a few hundred can attend national meetings. Surviving on limited incomes, they cannot afford basic registration fees and/or travel. But, more so, travelling to a conference can be excruciating painful. Most patients stay home and hope to read transcripts or watch DVD's of the event.

The internet, however, changes this dynamic. We can now bring the conference directly to the patient and reach thousands of patients at one time. This lecture series will be seen by more than 300,000 patients a month who will read transcripts, attend lectures, participate with family and friends and obtain the support that they desperately need. We've also proven that far more men participate via the web rather than by attending meetings. The same is true for patients who value their privacy. Thus, you have the opportunity to reach a new population of consumers.

We are now seeking co-sponsors for this event! If you have a product or service which assists IC patients in living a better life, we would like to work with you!
