Novo Nordisk will sponsor four Inhibitor Patient Education Summits in the U.S. in 2006. Summits are planned for: Anaheim on July 28-29th; Dallas on August 4-5th; Baltimore on September 22-23rd; and Chicago on October 27-28th. Last November, Novo Nordisk held its first Inhibitor Patient Education Summit in Philadelphia. Topics for this year's summit include "Treatment Strategies," "Insurance: Changes and Challenges," "Exercise and Sports" and "Psychosocial Issues."
Speaker selection and session content for the Novo Nordisk Summits have been directed by a steering committee of national and local hemophilia leaders, including physicians, nurses, advocates, patients, physical therapists and social workers.
Travel grants will be available to eligible individuals and administered by select chapters. Onsite child care will also be provided. To register or learn more about the summits, call: 1.888.706.6867 or visit www.inhibitorsummits.org
