You can now apply for a travel grant for the 2018 HAE Global Conference

We are delighted to announce that patients and their care givers (close relatives) can now apply for a travel grant for the 2018 HAE Global Conference.

Before applying to attend the 2018 Global Conference, you must be aware of a new process put into place to encourage HAEi friends to fully participate in the exciting sessions that are being offered. Anyone who registers for the global conference must confirm that they will attend all sessions on both Friday 18 May 2018 and Saturday 19 May 2018. Failure to attend the sessions, however, will result in you being charged the full room rate for each night of your stay. When you check in, the Hilton Vienna (per its normal procedures) will block the full room rate on your credit card. If you attend all of the sessions on Friday and Saturday the block on your credit card will be released upon check out.

In order to be eligible for a travel grant, applicants must be

  1. a part of your member organization (in the country where you live), and
  2. have the HAE diagnosis or be a close relative – care giver to a HAE patient.

Complete the form “Travel Grant Application” and accept the conditions. Remember, you must complete one application per traveler. Please mention in the remark field if you are traveling together with someone.

We look forward to seeing HAE friends in Vienna in May 2018.

Best wishes,
Your HAEi Team

Exciting conference program

We are working hard to bring together a very exciting conference program for you.

HAE friends can expect plenty of time to interact with fellow attendees from throughout the world, as well as a wide variety of important information, and learning opportunities. These include what every patient and family must know about HAE; the most recent clinical advances and consensus treatment recommendations; and advocacy strategies/techniques for gaining or broadening access to HAE medicines. There will be a separate track for HAE youngsters that will enable peer group interaction and sharing of insights on how to cope with HAE.

HAE physician/researchers from throughout the globe will gather to present abstracts and discuss future research opportunities. In addition, we will offer an educational and networking session for all healthcare professionals interested in HAE.

The agenda for the 2018 HAE Global Conference will be updated on this page as it evolves. #haeGC18
