Patient Education Regional Conference Series

In order to comply with health and safety guidelines issued for the COVID-19 pandemic, we have cancelled the Vasculitis Patient & Family Conference that was scheduled for April 18 in Silver Spring, Maryland.  We are investigating hosting a virtual conference instead.

A long-standing goal of the Vasculitis Foundation (VF) is to provide in-person educational opportunities for the vasculitis community.  Our regional conferences are a pillar of the VF’s patient education programs. The conferences are open to patients with vasculitis, their families, caregivers, and friends. The regional conferences typically focus on manifestations, treatments, and complications of vasculitis. Attendees will also learn about strategies for managing their disease, treatment and side effects from leading physicians with vasculitis expertise.

Regional conference format includes lectures and short breakout sessions. A question and answer session will follow each lecture, allowing participants the opportunity to ask questions to clarify the finer points of the presentations.

SAVE THE DATE:  The VF Kansas Patient & Family Regional Conference:  Saturday, August 8, 2020, Overland Park, Kansas.  We hope to host an in-person meeting and will be updating the information later this spring.


The VF thanks our sponsors for supporting our 2020 Patient Education Regional Conference Series.
