Thanks to a very generous donation from an AIHA member, we are offering two $500 travel awards to help support travel expenses to the AIHA Patient Support and Education Weekend held in Indianapolis on June 10-11, 2017. This support is intended for autoimmune hepatitis patients and their family members and will include $500 to be presented to recipients at the time of the conference. In addition to the travel awards, conference attendance fees will be waived. The ideal recipients may have financial, social, or other factors that present genuine barriers to travel to Indianapolis. Interested applicants may apply once.
In order to be considered for the award, applicants must submit a no more than 300 word paragraph that details how they would benefit from attending the AIHA Patient Support and Education Weekend and how the award will make a difference to ensure attendance. Submissions should be sent to the email address: AHRN@iupui.edu no later than March 10th, 2017. Please include your name and primary contact information in your submission. Selected awardees will be notified within the following weeks.
More information about the conference can be found at www.hubtocure.com/aiha
