NORD PNH Patient and Family Meetings in 2016

The National Organization for Rare Disorders will hold four one-day meetings for PNH patients and their families in September through December 2016.

Patients, caregivers, and families affected by PNH are invited to participate. You'll meet other patients and speak with a medical expert. You can come together in a small group and gain the encouragement and hope that comes from meeting face-to-face with other PNH patients. Everyone will be able to share personal experiences with each other, gain a better understanding of this rare disease, and help others cope with the effects of their illness.

Breakfast and lunch are included. There is a light buffet reception the night before.

To RSVP for any meeting or for more information, contact Ms. Susan Olivo at NORD by email or at 203-744-0100.

NORD, the National Organization for Rare Disorders, is a unique federation of voluntary health organizations dedicated to helping people with rare "orphan" diseases and assisting the organizations that serve them. NORD is committed to the identification, treatment, and cure of rare disorders through programs of education, advocacy, research, and service.

  • Buffet reception
Saturday agenda (8:30am to 3:00pm)
  • Welcome & Introduction
