ITP Conference 2019... the largest to-date
This year, PDSA hosted its 19th annual update on immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) for patients, caregivers and the medical community in Washington, D.C. July 26-28. This year’s patient conference took place at the Fairmont Washington, D.C., Georgetown. Each year the ITP conference provides opportunities to hear the latest information about ITP, meet others who are coping and living with ITP and receive answers to your medical questions. Attendees had the opportunity to ask questions to PDSA’s Medical Advisors, who are some of the most experienced ITP doctors in the world.
A highlight to the weekend was the Externally-Led Patient-Focused Drug Development (EL-PFDD) meeting on Friday, July 26, where representatives from the FDA were on-hand to get patient feedback on current ITP treatments and future drugs in development.
In addition to the educational program and social events, our conference featured several small group sessions that gave participants an opportunity to get to know other patients and caregivers in an intimate environment. We also offered programs for children at our Kids Kamp for children ages 5-12. Like last year, this year’s conference provided a separate track for teens and young adults.
