The 2020 HAE Global Conference in Frankfurt, Germany is only about five months away, and at HAE International everyone is doing their part to get the largest HAE gathering ever ready.
“At this point, all travel grants have been allocated to patients and caregivers from around the globe, and every day we are receiving new registrations for the conference. Momentarily we have over 750 participants – more than 80 percent of them signed up for the Patients’ Track while some 10 percent will be following the Youngsters’ Track and the rest the Scientific Track. The 750+ people represent almost 70 countries on six continents”, says HAE International Project Manager Jørn Schultz-Boysen.
As space is filling up quickly HAE International recommends that you register for the conference soon if you want to be sure to take part:
“We are still working on the details for the program, but we can reveal that there will be a high focus both on global and regional initiatives. As usual, we will have a Scientific Track, and again this time, we hope to have HAE physicians from all over the world participate in this quite unique HAE International event. Also, I would like to draw attention to our Youngsters’ Track aimed at HAE patients and caregivers between 12 and 26 years of age”, says Jørn Schultz-Boysen.
All participants in the Scientific Track are invited to submit abstracts that relate to one of these topics for presentation during the Scientific Program of the conference:
- Determining better pathways to diagnosis and management of HAE. Welcoming abstracts on new/improved diagnostic approaches, prodromal symptoms, screening, markers of HAE, innovative treatment/management methods and patient registry data
- Creating a path to normalization of HAE patients’ lives. Welcoming abstracts on the impact of HAE on patient quality of life (e.g. working/educational life, social life and relationships), the psychological impact of HAE, comprehensive HAE centers, multidisciplinary approach, research networks and solutions for normalization of patients’ lives.
The deadline for submission of abstracts is 27 February 2020 – and authors will be notified on acceptance by email by 26 March 2020.
