Free Summit on Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID) Coming Soon!

Severe Combined Immunodeficiency

Severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) is a group of diseases caused by mutations that affect how the immune system works to fight infections. These anomalies are usually passed down in an autosomal recessive pattern but there are X-linked forms of SCID as well.  As genetics have advanced, we have continued to learn more and more about this life threatening condition.

The Summit

Through a grant from the United States Department of Health and Human Services, SCID Compass (a program of the Immune Deficiency Foundation), is sponsoring a free summit to provide continuing education on SCID. This summit is designed for the parents of infants diagnosed with SCID or suspected SCID, for families struggling with the challenges of SCID, and for medical professionals.

The program will take place on-line this year over the course of two days:

Thursday April 29 and Friday April 30, 2021

11 am – 3 pm (ET) each day
