CAF Scholarship Winners Attend TIF International Conference

November 21, 2017 – The Thalassaemia International Federation (TIF) held the 14th International Conference on Thalassaemia & Haemoglobinopathies, as well as the 16th TIF International Conference for Patients & Parents at the Grand Hotel Palace in Thessaloniki, Greece this past weekend from November 17-19, 2017. The Conference was organized in collaboration with Greek Thalassaemia Federation (EOTHA) and the Greek Ministry of Health. As with all TIF regional and international conferences, the TIF International Conference was comprised of two parallel programs – a Scientific Programme for Medical Specialists and another for Patients/ Parents.

The Cooley’s Anemia Foundation is proud to have supported the attendance of eight U.S. thalassemia patients and parents of thalassemia patients at this Conference through a scholarship fund in order to help defray some of the costs associated with traveling to and attending the Conference. We applaud TIF for hosting yet another very successful conference and for bringing together the global thalassemia community. To learn more about TIF and their work, visit
