In conjunction with its 2016 Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF) Retreats, IDF is offering opportunities for young adults and older teens with SCID to meet and spend time together, connecting with others who have experienced this disease.
IDF Retreats offer opportunities for individuals and their family members to learn more about dealing with primary immunodeficiencies. The educational sessions feature leading physicians, healthcare professionals and life management specialists. Their presentations should be of interest to these young adults and older teens, but this year at the IDF Retreat in Salt Lake City, there are special, separate activities for these individuals with SCID.
Participants will meet for an informal gathering for young adults and older teens with SCID to become acquainted at the start of the retreat.
A group meeting created specifically for young adults and older teens with SCID will be held Saturday afternoon. Participants will discuss issues such as balancing health, social life and career, as well as medical and health insurance concerns. And perhaps most importantly, they will have time to share ideas and experiences about living with this disorder. An immunologist who specializes in SCID will be available for a Q&A session.
Limited travel and registration scholarships are available for participants.
The SCID Young Adult & Older Teen Program at the 2016 IDF Retreat in Salt Lake City
is sponsored by Sigma-Tau Pharmaceuticals.
