This Seattle meeting will be one of a series of educational meetings HF will begin holding in 2019 and beyond. We hope that holding one-day meetings in a variety of locations will allow more people with IH and related disorders, as well as their supporters, to take part in an HF event.
This gathering will be the first HF outreach and awareness event on the West Coast, and is open to everyone!
