THE MASTOCYTOSIS SOCIETY INC. CONFERENCE
MAY 1 – 3, 2019
Join us May 1-3, 2019 in Northern California for the 2019 Patient Conference.
The 23rd national TMS Patient/Caregiver Conference will consist of lay-person-focused medical presentations, panel discussions, workshops and support group sessions, with time for questions, and will incorporate breaks to allow for resting periods, and free time to allow for casual socializing.
This conference will provide a uniquely supportive environment in which patients, caregivers and families learn to self-advocate, and will offer exposure to research and clinical trial information to which they normally would not have access. Patients, caregivers, physicians, young or established investigators, and biopharma can interact outside of the medical environment to promote more positive relationships in a casual atmosphere.
Registration is required and is now open. Rates increase after Feb 1st. The deadline for registration is April 21, 2019.
There was an Inspire “How-To” webinar offered for all TMS FB members in October 2018. The Inspire Team answered the questions and concerns that you submitted to us and some we copied from the FB page posts. This webinar has been saved to be viewed after the live showing – you can view a recording of the webinar here.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any comments or questions.
