One-day Patient Conference in Phoenix, March 26, 2011

The Aplastic Anemia & MDS International Foundation (AA&MDSIF) is holding six one-day patient conferences in 2011.

The first of these conferences will be held Saturday, March 26 in Phoenix, Arizona. It's a multi-track conference for AA, MDS, and PNH patients and their families. (West-coast patients might also consider attending the one-day patient conference that will be held in San Francisco on Saturday, July 23, 2011.)

The conference will include parallel (simultaneous) sessions on topics related to AA, MDS, and PNH, as well as sessions to help you live with and cope with these diseases.

Conference attendance is free. Breakfast and lunch are included. Discounted hotel rates are available to those who want to stay overnight.
