Each conference will include parallel (simultaneous) sessions on AA, MDS, and PNH, sessions to help you live with and cope with these diseases, and professionally-facilitated support sessions with your peers.

At each conference patients and family members will be able to
  • meet medical experts face-to-face
  • hear about the latest treatments and medical research
  • learn skills for managing life with a bone marrow failure disease
  • have your questions answered
  • learn how to be your own advocate for the best care
  • get to know other patients and family members like yourselves
  • attend professionally-facilitated support sessions
  • connect to a Community of Hope in your area
  • learn about the AA&MDSIF Peer Support Connection
  • learn how the AA&MDSIF can help you
The first conference registrations will open in December 2014.

We'll announce further details as they become available. You can also watch the AA&MDSIF Conferences page for news.
