Patient and Family Conferences in 2014

ConferencesThe Aplastic Anemia & MDS International Foundation is Meeting You Where You Are in 2014 by offering six free regional conferences on aplastic anemia, MDS, and PNH.  Each program will provide you with answers from leading medical experts and the chance to connect with as many as 150 other patients and their caregivers.
