“This collaborative effort will bring you the latest medical updates regarding atypical HUS (aHUS). The aHUS clinicians and research teams at the University of Iowa will provide an entire day of aHUS medical and research information on Saturday, November 5th. You will learn about the latest in aHUS diagnosis, treatment, transplantion and genetics, and the basics of "What is complement?" and How to manage chronic illness".
The weekend offers a unique opportunity for patients and families living with aHUS to meet one another and to discuss common issues. The conference will conclude with a roundtable discussion where patients and families share stories and tips about living with aHUS. Please contact Amy Weaver at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about the conference.”
Currently representatives from the aHUS Alliance, an umbrella group of 15 nations with aHUS patient groups, are forming plans to attend the Iowa conference and to additionally hold a global advocacy meeting.
**Portions of this event are made possible through a generous grant from Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
