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. 


Every year, we offer patients, families, caregivers and friends the free opportunity to hear the latest information on treating and living with bone marrow failure disease from the nation's leading experts on aplastic anemia, MDS and PNH. People travel from far and wide to attend our regional conferences, not only for the unique access to top specialists, but to learn new skills and connect with other families coping with the same issues.   


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.
