Patient and family sessions

The Fourth BHD Symposium took place in Cincinnati, USA, on 28th – 30th March, 2012. We were delighted to see many of you there. The symposium was held in the Vontz Center at the University of Cincinnati. As with previous symposia, the meeting included sessions for both scientists and patients.

The patient and family sessions took place on Thursday 29th March. These sessions were led by a genetic counsellor who is an expert in BHD syndrome. Attendees had the chance to talk to clinicians about their symptoms, learn more about BHD and meet other patients from around the world.



Highlights of the patient and family sessions are available on the BHD Research Blog.

Abstracts of the scientific presentations and posters are available here.
