Conferences

AAMDSIF holds two types of educational conferences - those devoted to the needs of patients and families and those tailored for health professionals. Both long-term survivors and the newly diagnosed come to patient conferences for updates from leading experts, to learn new skills and to connect with each other. Our professional events include regional conferences, as well as top-tier global scientific meetings. 

Patients

The conference was excellent. The blankets were wonderful. Small breakouts and info was very valuable. You gave us a lot of hope and options more than we realized we had.

For 2017, AAMDSIF is offering six national “Living with Aplastic Anemia, MDS, PNH” patient and family conferences in six cities around the country. Each free conference offers incredible learning opportunities from leading medical experts, the ability to connect directly with other patients and caregivers, and hope for the future. So, where will we see you in 2017?

Professionals

AAMDSIF sponsors live education events throughout the year. This includes satellite symposia at annual medical association meetings, as well as smaller live regional events where community-based health professionals can hear from leading experts. The International Bone Marrow Failure Disease Scientific Symposium is our biennial professional meeting held near Washington, DC.
