The Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF) hosted three Patient Education Meetings during National Primary Immunodeficiency Awareness Month this April.

Patient Education Meetings, created and developed by IDF with the help of local volunteers and healthcare professionals, are designed for individuals and family members. By traveling to regions throughout the country, IDF can further promote awareness and offer invaluable information about the treatment and management of primary immunodeficiency diseases from healthcare and life management experts.
