PI Voices is a new young adult webinar series developed by the Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF) to address the unique needs of young adults living with primary immunodeficiency disease (PI). The series consists of five live webinars covering topics from career management, medical care prioritization, insurance transitions, family planning and health/social life balance. Each offers participants an opportunity to ask questions of panel experts and connect with other audience members who may share their experience of living with PI. The schedule is as follows:
- March 16: Managing Your Career as a Young Adult with PI
- April 20: Fitting Your Medical Care Into a Busy Life
- May 18: Transitioning Off Your Parents’ Insurance
- August 24: Family Planning and PI
- September 21: Balancing Your Health and Your Social Life
The series is sponsored by CSL Behring and requires registration. Recordings of each webinar will be available shortly after the live events.
“We recognize that young adulthood is a critical time for people with primary immunodeficiency. For the first time, many are taking responsibility of their own care, impacting all aspects of their life,” says Marcia Boyle, IDF president and founder. “We are so grateful for CSL Behring’s support of our new, interactive program, giving this age group a valuable opportunity to learn how to manage these concerns.”
