US – New plasma initiative | IDF Summit now online
The Immune Deficiency launched Plasma Hero, an initiative designed to educate the general public on the critical need for plasma and to connect potential donors with resources to get started. The website consists of a donation center locator, practical information on what it’s like to donate, guidelines, and tips for first-time donors.
In addition to a website (www.plasmahero.org) and social media channels (@beaplasmahero) the organization has also created shareable PDF documents, posters and a video which highlights a family of plasma heroes.
Recorded Sessions Now Available for IDF Summits
Rare of the Rare and the IDF National Summit, the first large-scale virtual events hosted by the Immune Deficiency Foundation, were held in September and November, respectively.
Rare of the Rare focused on those with ultra-rare PI diagnoses and welcomed participants from multiple countries. The IDF National Summit offered opportunities for connection and learning for the entire PI community. Presentations by a wide array of physicians and subject matter experts can now be viewed on IDF’s YouTube channel.
