The National Neutropenia Network board of directors is pleased to announce that we will be hosting the Neutropenia Family Conference again in 2016 from July 8- 10 in Ann Arbor. This is a popular destination for our Conference and we expect record attendance this year. If at all possible register early.
We have reserved a block of rooms at the discounted rate of $114 per night plus tax. The Conference fee covers the cost of all meals, handouts and sessions. Once again we will have a fantastic program for the children, and we plan to have some special sessions for the teens. It is our hope that this early announcement will allow interested individuals an opportunity to plan and save for a very special weekend.
