Global PID Patients’ Meeting goes virtual!

The XVI IPOPI Global PID Patients Meeting was planned to take place this year in Birmingham, UK, between October 14-17, back to back with the European Society for Immunodeficiencies (ESID) and International Nursing Group for Immunodeficiencies (INGID) biennial meetings. The COVID-19 pandemic has made us adjust our plans and move this meeting into an virtual format. The 2020 Global PID Patients Meeting will take place on October 15 and 16, between 13h and 16h30 CEST.

IPOPI Board members and staff members are now preparing an adjusted programme that, despite being shorter, will guarantee learning, interaction and celebration in the same mood a live meeting would. The partnership with ESID and INGID will be kept in the virtual format, allowing each participating NMO to benefit further from the meeting.

We will be sending out the details of how to register, the platform that will be used and the adjusted programme shortly, stay tuned!
Virtual meetings are full of opportunities. While nothing replaces in-person interaction this meeting will have no travel costs, be easy to access and can be attended by several members of your NMO! See you soon in the first ever virtual Global PID Patients’ Meeting.
