Eos Connection VIRTUAL: APFED’s Annual Patient Education Conference on Eosinophil-associated Diseases
July 9-11, 2020
Stay tuned for details about announcements related to this all-virtual event!
APFED has been diligently monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak and the impacts on public health and safety. Ensuring the health and well-being of all people is our top priority, and we want to do everything we can to help keep you, your family, and your communities safe.
Based on guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control, APFED and its volunteer event organizers have made the decision to postpone all in-person events that were scheduled to take place this spring. We are deeply grateful to our event organizers for their dedication, enthusiasm, and efforts to bring together people in their communities to support those affected by eosinophil-associated diseases.
We will continue to monitor and assess federal and local guidelines regarding in-person gatherings, and we hope to reschedule planned events to take place as soon as it is safe to do so. As updates become available, we will share them with you.
APFED is thinking of you and your families. We know social distancing can feel isolating, and you are not alone! Please consider connecting with your peers through APFED’s online community.
If we can answer any questions for you, provide you with resources, information, or educational materials, or help you establish an online fundraiser to advance research efforts for eosinophil-associated diseases, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
