Each year the International Pemphigus and Pemphigoid Foundation (IPPF) travels to a popular location bringing together patients, caregivers, physicians, and researchers for a weekend of education, bonding, and friendship.

Patients, caregivers, and physicians are invited to join us as we celebrate friendship and fellowship at the DoubleTree by Hilton on Chicago’s famous Magnificent Mile. Guests at the hotel enjoy a discounted single King (or double Queen) room rate of $149 per night +$20 per additional adult (regularly $209-$229/night), $13 selfparking during the day and $35 overnight (regularly $50/night), and complimentary in-room WiFi Internet access (regularly $10/day).That’s a total savings of $181 for a two-day stay!

This year at the 17th Annual Patient Conference we are introducing a format to allow time at the conference AND enjoy this great city. We begin Friday, April 25, 2014 with registration and introductory sessions (4:00 pm), followed by our Welcome Reception at 6:00 pm.

On Saturday, April 26, 2014, will be the general session ending around 1:00 pm. This will give attendees time to enjoy some of the area’s famous pizza, sandwiches, and attractions -- all within minutes of the hotel. Come back later that evening for our 20th Anniversary & Awards Dinner. Join us for cocktails, food, entertainment, and Casino Night with great prizes and all proceeds benefiting the IPPF’s Patient Support programs.

On Sunday, April 27, 2013, there will be some general session talks with several interactive and informative workshops and Q&A with the speakers.

As always, the IPPF Board of Directors and Peer Health Coaches will be on hand, as will members of the IPPF Medical Advisory Board and local and global experts on pemphigus and pemphigoid. Dr. Ani
Sinha and his team from the University of Buffalo will be on hand for the seventh consecutive year collecting blood samples from patients (and family members) for research.
