Education Days

The Alpha-1 Foundation’s booth provides educational materials for Alphas

Alpha-1 education days are meetings for the patient community, their families and caregivers and are generally held at an Alpha-1 Clinical Resource Center (CRC) or in areas where there is a high prevalence of Alpha-1.

Education days are generally one-day meetings, often with a free dinner for patients the evening before. Education days feature the leading Alpha-1 physicians and healthcare providers in the country, including expert speakers on Alpha-1 lung and liver disease, respiratory therapists on the value of pulmonary rehabilitation, and talks on the use of medical oxygen. They include tips on improving daily life for Alphas, the latest research information, and the importance of joining the Alpha-1 Foundation Research Registry.
