Patient meeting and the ASH conventionThe APF just came back from the 56th ASH Annual Meeting, which was held in San Francisco, CA. More than 20,000 hematologists and health professionals in the field were in attendance. The APF educated physicians, professionals and everyone interested.Also, in a few short months, the APF hosted four patient education meetings. Our last meeting happened last week in conjunction with the ASH convention. The patients had a unique opportunity to meet and hear the presentations given by the porphyria experts: Dr. Bissell, Dr. Phillips and our Protect the Future trainee, Dr. Bruce Wang.We all thank the experts for the donating their time and giving wonderful presentations! We also thank everyone: patients, their family members and friends who attended. We are looking forward to seeing you on our upcoming meetings!HealthWell FoundationWe would like to remind you about the HealthWell Foundation, that assists patients living with chronic and life-altering illnesses in paying their share of prescription drug copayments, deductibles, and health insurance premiums.Since 2006, the HealthWell Foundation has provided copayment and premium assistance to eligible acute porphyria patients.
