From a PRWeb press release:
The Crowne Plaza Fallsview welcomed delegates from around the globe as the Leprosy Mission of Canada held their bi-annual conference in Niagara Falls in June. The International conference brings awareness to the disease which to this day continues to grip a portion of the world with a child diagnosed with the disease every 20 minutes, and 1,100 new cases being detected every day. The conference also gives delegates an opportunity to learn from each other, and share experiences.
Niagara Falls was selected to host the week-long event by the Canadian office of the mission thanks in part to beautiful scenery, proximity to international airports, and outstanding facilities offered at the hotel.
