The aHUS Alliance is pleased to announce that a TMA symposium:Through the Lens of aHUS will be held in Boston on 24 August 2017 in advance of the International aHUS Awareness Day on September 24, at the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center at Harvard Medical School. The symposium design is unique in its focus on global aHUS patient advocacy coordinated with clinical communications from diverse experts on the broader topics of thrombotic microangiopathy.
Physicians from multiple disciplines at academic centers in the city of Boston are partnering with rare disease advocates from international atypical HUS patient communities, including aHUS Canada. Speakers for the event are experts in the diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of TMA with scientific discoveries and clinical experiences to share. Broad issues will be covered such as differentiating diagnosis among TMAs, along with varied topics to include approaches to TMA by specialists (hematology vs nephrology), genomics and impact of mutations, as well as an overview of current and future therapies.
This symposium will be videotaped and made available for September 24 to highlight aHUS awareness Day 2017.
