The goal of the TTP Fair and Education Day is to create a converstion and a community between those affected by TTP and the physicians and researchers who are working to improve the available treatments, outcomes, and recovery time.This year, we are excited to have new presentation topics, as well as two new segments: the “Round-Table Discussions” and the “Physician Question Panel.” 

 As in the past, this will continue to be a small event with a focus on community. There will be time to speak directly with physicians and researchers, as well as with other patients and their family members. The day will consist of several educational presentations produced by physicians with expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of TTP, followed by Round-Table Discussions where you will have the opportunity to connect with other individuals affected by this disease, and a Physician Panel where patient stories are shared and final remaining questions are answered. You will also have the opportunity to learn more about the current cutting-edge research happening here at UAB, as well as the opportunity to participate in some of this research.
