Annual American Society Of Hematology, We need your help.


The American Porphyria Foundation will host an Exhibit Booth at the Annual  American Society of Hematology Convention at the Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, GA, December 8-10, 2012.
We are in need of volunteers to help man the Exhibit booth (dates and times are listed below), to educate eight thousand physicians who will attend the meeting.   This is a wonderful opportunity for APF members in the Atlanta area  to educate physicians about porphyria  by distributing pertinent medical  information and share your own experience with the disease.    Together  we can enhance awareness and education of the porphyrias.   If you would like to be a part of this exciting opportunity, please  e-mail Yvette at porphyrus@aol.com or call (713) 266-9616.

The booth is ready to open for the 8000  doctors who pass by.

Desiree and Yvette set up the exhibit booth!
