For Teens Living with Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases

If you know a teen with a primary immunodeficiency disease…


The Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF) wants you to know about our exciting, free event exclusively for teens diagnosed with primary immunodeficiency diseases.  Teens, ages 13-18, are invited to the IDF Teen ESCAPE Weekend on February 21-22, 2009 at the Westin Oaks Houston in Houston, Texas.


The IDF Teen ESCAPE weekend is an opportunity to acquaint teens diagnosed with primary immunodeficiency diseases with others like themselves.  This weekend is filled with fun activities designed to promote friendship, build leadership skills and develop coping skills.   Medical and life skills experts will present valuable information to the teens as well as encourage them to discuss what it means to live with a primary immunodeficiency disease with other participating teens. Separate sessions for teens in junior high and senior high are scheduled that focus on transition and advocacy issues.  Saturday morning even offers information for parents and guardians!


This event is made possible by an unrestricted educational grant by Baxter Healthcare.
