Learn – Connect – Be a Part of the IDF Community

IDF Retreats are weekend gatherings designed with everyone in the primary immunodeficiency community in mind—including you! Patients, parents, siblings, children and partners are encouraged to attend and learn how to develop better approaches to living with primary immunodeficiency. Plus, you can connect with others going through similar experiences and have some fun!

Whether a person is newly diagnosed or has been living with PI for years, IDF Retreats offer an opportunity for individuals and family members to connect with others to learn more about dealing with their diseases. The educational sessions feature leading physicians and healthcare professionals who address the treatment and management of primary immunodeficiency. Insurance specialists, public policy experts and other qualified professionals discuss life management issues.

The youth and teen programs held during these Retreats offer both education and fun, and are designed to help the younger members of our community better manage their diseases. With an ever-evolving, age-appropriate curriculum, medical and life skill experts present invaluable information for the younger participants with primary immunodeficiency.

Perhaps, most importantly, these retreats create a time for people living with PI to get together with others who are experiencing similar situations.
