AAMDSIF holds two types of educational conferences - those devoted to the needs of patients and families and those tailored for health professionals. Both long-term survivors and the newly diagnosed come to patient conferences for updates from leading experts, to learn new skills and to connect with each other. Our professional events include regional conferences, as well as top-tier global scientific meetings. 


Rare blood cancer and bone marrow failure diseases are often difficult to diagnose and even harder to explain. AAMDSIF brings international experts to your computer, tablet or smartphone using language that is easy to understand in a convenient one hour format. We have hundreds of webinars available for you to watch at any time you want!

Recent Research

Compiled for your convenience are the latest articles on bone marrow failure research and treatment from the world’s major journals on hematology / oncology. Articles are obtained from the National Library of Medicine’s MEDLINE database and date back to 2010.

Taking control of your care means being a proactive patient and standing up for yourself in the health care decision-making process. We teach patients and families proven strategies for becoming strong advocates, which is the best way to ensure that you're receiving the care and treatment you need.
