Chapter Luncheon - Genentech's Commitment to Hemophilia A: Creating What's Next Together
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Track: Chapters
Get yourself ready, from the waist up at least, for some conversation and a little TV magic. Sonali Chopra from advocacy relations and Adam Pryor from corporate relations at Genentech will share upcoming Genentech projects that support the hemophilia community. This includes a new professional development resource and an episode of CHALLENGE ACCEPTED, an original TV series inspired by and made for the hemophilia community that challenges the meaning of life with a bleeding disorder. We want to hear how Genentech can continue to support the hemophilia A community. You won't want to miss this magic! (You'll see what we mean.)

Industry Symposium
Beyond Trough Levels: Taking a Closer Look at Hemophilia B
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
Track: For All
You know that hemophilia B is different from hemophilia A in many ways, but when it comes to factor IX there’s more to explore. Unlike factor VIII, which stays in the bloodstream, factor IX also travels outside the bloodstream and into other areas of the body. This means that trough levels, which only measure factor in the bloodstream, may not tell the full story. Join Dr. Malec and community relations and education manager Rachel Kroouze to learn more about factor IX and other PK measurements you should consider as part of your treatment.

30th Anniversary of the Ryan White CARE Act
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Track: For All
Jeanne White-Ginder, mother of Ryan White, will share the story of how her son worked to destigmatize HIV/AIDS in the 1980s, and how she and other advocacy groups worked on landmark bipartisan legislation to get treatment and care to people with HIV/AIDS. This important part of our history is a lesson for why advocacy around access to care is so important to our community today.
