I need to order oxygen for the conference. How should I handle it with the hotel?plus

If you need supplemental oxygen during your visit, please pre-order through your regular oxygen supplier and make sure your oxygen is delivered to the front desk of the Hilton with your name on the order no more than 24 hours in advance of your arrival.

What should I wear to the Research Conference & LAMposium and the Breath of Hope Gala?plus

Casual or business casual attire is recommended throughout the conference. All presentations will take place inside the hotel’s ballrooms so bring a sweatshirt, sweater, or a pashmina if you tend to get chilly. You may also want to bring comfortable clothing for yoga or other fitness activities if you plan on participating. Don’t forget your dancing shoes and cocktail attire for the Breath of Hope Gala!
