On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I am pleased to invite you to the IDF 2013 National Conference. I am especially excited to welcome you to my town, Baltimore, Maryland. It is where IDF began in 1980 and where we held our first two national conferences in 2001 and 2003. We return to Baltimore in 2013 for an experience you will not want to miss!
The IDF National Conference is the only meeting in the U.S. that brings together the primary immunodeficiency community for three days of learning, discussing and sharing. Our conferences
have become a tradition, and we expect this seventh national conference to continue to attract people from all over the country. It is an incredible opportunity for individuals and family members living with primary immunodeficiency diseases to gain knowledge about their diseases from world-renowned immunologists. Attendees will learn about advancements in the diagnosis and treatments and gain skills needed to manage their healthcare. Patients and families will have the opportunity to meet other families and talk with our generous sponsors in the interactive exhibit hall. We want you to be a part of it!
Our sponsors, volunteers and staff have worked hard to guarantee that this conference is our best ever. I look forward to seeing you June 27-29!
