CHS RENDEZ-VOUS SPONSORSHIP 2017
The Canadian Hemophilia Society (CHS) is bringing Rendez-vous to Toronto this year! The conference will take place May 25th-28th, 2017. Rendez-vous will feature presentations, workshops, and exhibits on cutting-edge trends in research and treatment for hemophilia and other inherited bleeding disorders.
Rendez-vous is an invaluable opportunity, in only one weekend, to gain new knowledge at the medical and scientific sessions and community workshops, to network with peers and friends, to visit the pharmaceutical industry exhibits and to participate in the CHS Annual General Meeting. You can find more detailed information about Rendez-vous here.
Hemophilia Ontario will sponsor two individuals to attend, to a maximum of $2000 to assist with:
* Registration to Rendez-vous 2017;
* Hotel accommodation in Toronto at the conference location, arriving on May 25th and departing May 28th, based on single occupancy;
* Banquet ticket for one person (additional guests are at delegate's own expense);
* Transportation based on the most economical option based on the recipients' home location.

For both the $2000 and $500 subsidies, selected delegates must submit receipts for reimbursement.
