What is an IDF Webinar?
One of the many important functions of the Immune Deficiency Foundation is to present education programs throughout the country on comprehensive and varied topics related to the treatment and management of primary immunodeficiencies. IDF Webinars accomplish that mission virtually, in a way that wouldn’t be possible at a location-based event.
Built to be interactive in nature, each webinar consists of a presentation from a physician or subject-matter expert, a time for questions and answers, and an opportunity to meet with event sponsors to gather additional information. In order to keep participants engaged, topics change frequently and the webinars are offered at various times of the day. Some are Lunch & Learns, some happen in the afternoon, and many are in the early evening hours. They typically last between 1-2 hours and provide a unique opportunity to connect and learn with others.
Additionally, some of these webinars have topics that are specific to certain diagnoses, health concerns, or treatment modalities. The ability to have these webinars address more specialized topics provides opportunities for learning and growth for everyone, no matter where they live.
Feel free to email us with any questions. We hope you can join us for our next IDF webinar!

A Little History of IDF Educational Initiatives
Originally called Local Education Meetings, they were created and developed by IDF with the help of local volunteers and healthcare professionals, and designed for adults with PI, parents, caregivers, spouses, partners, and friends.
These one-day meetings were presented on a regional level throughout the year. Professionals shared their knowledge and volunteers from the area would share their experiences. These meetings gave a broad overview of issues for patients, which might include insurance reimbursement, therapy, or life management. These events provided an environment for patients and families to share ideas and form lifelong friendships.
