IDF 2009 National Conference

REGISTER NOW for the largest gathering of our extraordinary IDF community, June 18–20, 2009, at Disney’s Contemporary Resort in Florida.


During the conference, members of the IDF community will come face-to-face with world-renown immunologists who will share their expertise on medical matters.  Life management sessions will offer suggestions and solutions to improve everyday life and attendees will have the chance to get some of their own questions answered (see below for the full list of presenters as of 3/24/09).


On Friday night, conference attendees will celebrate THINK ZEBRA! with food, beverages, entertainment and a fantastic silent auction all while decked-out in their own black and white.  On Saturday, everyone will venture to Epcot for an evening of fun, food and fireworks – the premier nighttime spectacular, Illuminations: Reflections for the Earth will immediately follow a scrumptious dessert reception.


The Youth Program has been expanded to meet the needs of all ages.  There are four sections, each with age-appropriate learning and fun activities, including:  Childcare for six months to five years, Kids Club for those ages’ six to nine, Tween Scene for those in between ten to twelve year-olds and the Teen ESCAPE for thirteen to eighteen year-olds.  There are adventures that include trips to Disney Quest and the Magic Kingdom, plus plenty of team building activities and our very own “Silly Olympics.”


For medical professionals who are attending, a medical education program, jointly sponsored by USF Health and IDF will be available.  You can earn 4.5 AMA PRA Category 1 credits™ or 4.5 CEU contact hours.  CLICK HERE for more information, or to register.
