Canadian Conference on state of the art care for Sickle Cell, including new therapies such as gene therapy – Montreal Sept’30-Oct’1

Dear colleagues and friends,

I am inviting you to participate in the Engage Conference, our 3d national Canadian conference on Sickle Cell disease which will be held in Ottawa on September 30th and October 1st.

We will have an exciting program, providing education on state of the art care as well as ongoing treatment development (new therapeutic venues including gene therapy).
It is a unique opportunity to meet with colleges involved in the care of patients with hemoglobin disorder, network and discuss research opportunities and collaboration.

You can also encourage your patients to participate in the second day of the meeting, designed to favour patient and health care professionals interactions, as well as patient-patient and patient-advocacy group interaction. Engage them to participate on October 1st!

Why wait? Register now:

I hope to see you there!
