NEW 2021 Events Announced!

by Whitney

CIPO is pleased to announce new events for 2021. These events include a wide range of topics covering support, education and fun!

If you’ve noticed that we are doing things a little differently, that is because, we are! This pandemic has forced us to reimagine how we offer our services and programs, and also how the immunodeficiency population is affected. We are therefore offering the following categories of events:

Social events: (virtual)

These events have already started with our Holiday Craft night and our Yoga night. We hope that by connecting with community through the isolation of COVID, we can continue to be together in a fun and creative way. There will be a small cost to attend these events.

Webinars: (virtual)

These educational events will feature a specialist addressing one aspect of health and how it affects the immunodeficiency population. They will be moderated by a member of CIPO’s medical advisory committee. These events are free to CIPO members

Info sessions: (virtual)

These short informational sessions  will answer questions and delve deeper into specific areas of our work at CIPO and how members can get involved. Each session will be led by a member of the CIPO staff.
