Family Conference

The Neutropenia Family Conference is our premier event. For many the Family Conference is a life-changing experience as they meet other patients with neutropenia and confer with some of the top neutropenia specialists in the world.


2015 Neutropenia Family Conference

The National Neutropenia Network board of directors is pleased to announce that we will be hosting the Neutropenia Family Conference again in 2015 from July 17-19 in Seattle. With the Severe Chronic Neutropenia International Registry entering its third decade of research and patient advocacy, and with the Registry’s clinical manager, Audrey Anna Bolyard, a confirmed Conference participant, Seattle holds a special place for neutropenic patients. The NNN board agreed we should not miss the chance to meet in this epicenter of neutropenia research.

Knowing that Seattle can be an expensive place to visit, we have negotiated the best price possible for guest rooms at the beautiful Seattle Airport Marriott with plenty of meeting rooms to accommodate our program. The Conference fee covers the cost of all meals, handouts and sessions. We will have a children’s program but it will not be as extensive as the one we have in Ann Arbor. I hope this early announcement allows interested individuals an opportunity to plan and save for a very special weekend.
