NEBATA Awareness and Conferences
Every year we host an educational Thalassaemia Awareness conference and workshop, which are free and open to the public with a focus on patients, their families, doctors and nursing caring for patients with Thalassaemia and anyone who is interested in learning about the various aspects of living with Thalassaemia. . The conference consists of speakers who are experts in the field talking about the newest advances in therapy for Thalassaemia as well as new management protocols and upcoming events in the Thalassaemia community. We are all about creating a community where everyone can discuss their issues and we work to improve the upcoming conferences and events. Not only do we host national conferences but we provide financial aid so that patients can travel abroad for international conferences on Thalassaemia. The conference will take place in the morning and consists of six different presentations by Thalassemia consultants. This is followed by a workshop, which gives our patients the opportunity to ask any questions in smaller groups. The benefits of this are that it increases their knowledge and improves their understanding of Thalassaemia.
