We wanted to make One Rb World 2017 truly a global event. We wanted parents, survivors and medical professionals to join us from across the USA and around the world, even if they couldn’t travel to Washington D.C.
We were delighted to enable our wish by live streaming the program on Tuesday 10 and Wednesday 11 October.
135 parents, survivors, other relatives and medical professionals registered from 23 countries on 6 continents. The final number of viewers was higher as the livestream direct link became shared with friends and colleagues.
Live stream viewers were able to interact with speakers and participate in discussions by sending written comments and questions via the live stream system. Their comments were received and shared by several dedicated volunteers in the conference room.
We regret that we were unable to live stream the Family and Survivor Day program or the Break Out sessions, due to the nature of this program content.
All live stream content was also captured on video, as were our Family & Survivor Day sessions. We will work with an editor to prepare the content for viewing online at a later date. This process involves significant work, with the help of a generous volunteer, and we cannot give a timescale for completion at this time. .
We are excited to be able to bring you content from One Rb World, even if you were unable to join us in Washington D.C. or via livestream. We will keep you informed as this process develops.
