The PFIC Family Conference is an opportunity for PFIC Families worldwide to come together at one event. This is a great chance to learn more about the disease from experts in the field, meet other families who share the same struggles and hear of their triumphs, and maybe even make lifelong friends.
This year our conference is virtual! Using the MyCityMed virtual conference platform, we are hosting a two day webinar based conference with global availability and translation services. On July 16 & 17, registrants will be able to join the virtual conference center which includes lounges for viewing live webinars, a dedicated international networking lounge, and exhibit hall with booths that contain more information on a variety of different community interests.
We are committed to making these opportunities available and accessible to our global community. For this reason, there is no cost for registration. However, for those who can, we do ask for a minimum of $5 donation during registration to help us cover the cost of resources that we are using to make this an all inclusive experience. All participants will receive a virtual ticket at sign up and a PFIC Network swag bag in the mail! More information on the topics presented and the speakers will be available in the coming weeks.
For a sneak peak of the early line-up (subject to change) view the agenda below!
Check out all the topics that are going to be covered during this conference!
There will be two Keynote presentations during this conference that are focused on genetics. These topics are a focal point for better understanding of PFIC not just as one disease, but as a set of genetic diseases with many differences.
Keynote #1: Basics of Genetics: PFIC as a set of genetic diseases of cholestasis
Presented by: Dr. William Balistreri, MD and Dr. Chunyue Yin, PhD
Keynote #2: Genetics of PFIC: A deep dive into what is known about each disease individually
Presented by: Dr. Richard Thompson, MD and Dr. Laura Bull, PhD
Times and speakers for all sessions will be released at a later date. The agenda is subject to change based on presenter availability.
