Immune Deficiency Foundation Young Adult Webinar Series Videos Available Online
The Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF) Young Adult Webinar Series was created to meet the needs and interests of young adults (ages 18-30) living with primary immunodeficiency diseases (PI). The years of your life when you’re determining who you are and who you want to be can be challenging, which is why having a community to support, guide and answer questions can be crucial to growth and success.
In 2016 five live webinars were held. Presenters and participants alike asked and answered questions, discussed concerns, shared stories, and connected with people who are living with the unique challenges that young adults with PI face.
To date, IDF has posted these webinar recordings on the IDF website, and they are available for anyone to view. These webinars cross a wide range of topics for young adults, including:
- Managing Your Career as a Young Adult with PI
- Fitting Your Medical Care into a Busy Life
- Health Insurance – Get the Facts
- Family Planning and PI
- Balancing Your Health and Your Social Life
