APF Exhibit at the American Society of Hematology.
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 email@example.com or call (713) 266-9616.
