Pre-Conference Meet-ups

Friday, June 17

Mix and mingle with patients and caregivers of all ages and backgrounds, as well as community leaders who volunteer as members of PHA advisory boards, at the Pre-Conference Meet-ups. By the end of these meet-ups, you will recognize a bunch of friendly faces. By Sunday, you might just count them as lifelong friends!

Look for these specific groups while you enjoy socializing at the Pre-Conference Meet-ups:
