2020 Neutropenia Retreat
July 24-26, 2020
Westfield Center in Medina, Ohio
Registration will open soon. Thanks for your patience.
The Neutropenia Retreat is a time for people and families of all ages and all types of neutropenia to come to share stories, learn, and spend time together.
The Neutropenia Retreat will be held at the Westfield Country Club in Medina, Ohio, conveniently located between Cleveland and Columbus in the picturesque Village of Westfield Center. The conference center is located 40 minutes from Cleveland and 90 minutes from Columbus. Westfield’s hospitality campus is perfect for our retreat and they plan to wow us with the best possible experience for all participants.
As in past years, participants in the 2020 Neutropenia Family Conference will have a chance to speak with the experts, hear presentations covering the latest treatment and research, and participate in programs geared toward managing life with neutropenia in it. We are planning a weekend of learning and fun for the children. There will be many opportunities for participants to get to know each other in a comfortable and nurturing setting.
The basic tentative structure of the conference is as follows:
Friday, July 24th, 2020 afternoon (exact time TBA but between 1pm and 3pm)
First Time Attendees Session concurrent with Conference Reunion
Welcome Session for all attendees
Meet and Greet Reception
Saturday, July 25th, 2020
Starting with breakfast, guests will enjoy speakers, breakout sessions, and one-on-one sessions. Kids will have a blast at Kids Kamp (must be at least 4 years old to participant).
Sunday, July 26th, 2020
Attendees will enjoy a breakfast, closing session, and more.
Returning this year, a session for first time attendees as well as a Reunion for our returning guests. We want to give those new an overall view of what to expect and those returning, a time to say hello to friends.
The popular Friday Meet and Greet Reception will return. As in the past families and presenters will have a chance to mingle and get to know each other while enjoying a filling assortment of appetizers.
We plan to continue the Friday Kids Kamp so parents will have the opportunity to attend the educational sessions on Friday afternoon knowing their children are having fun in a safe environment with their peers. Children will be welcomed back to Kids Kamp on Saturday where another day of learning and fun activities.
Saturday afternoon will have several choices for attendees. There will break out sessions with different interests related to those with neutropenia. On Saturday evening we continue our tradition of hosting a family dinner where participants can relax and enjoy time with new friends.
