to SJIA Family Education Day at Cincinnati Children’s
22nd July 2017
9:00 AM to 4:30 AM
Sabin Auditorium, Cincinnati Childrens Hospital
3333 Burnet Avenue, Cincinnati, OH, 45229, USA
Organized jointly by the SJIA Foundation and Cincinnati Children’s Rheumatology Department
The event is for SJIA parents to learn about SJIA & MAS directly from experts and to connect with other SJIA families. It is also an opportunity for physicians (both Attending and Fellows) to meet SJIA families outside the clinic and hear about their concerns and questions.
We welcome patients with Adult Still’s Disease, or adults diagnosed with SJIA during childhood. We also welcome families with Autoinflammatory disease patients who will find this event relevant.
The event is FREE due to the generosity of our sponsors.
