CIIC Annual Patient Scholarship: Empowering PIDD and Rare Disease Patients
The CIIC (Coalition of Immunology and Allergy Clinics) is proud to announce the continuation of its Annual Patient Scholarship program, initiated in 2021. This unique scholarship is specifically tailored for patients diagnosed with Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases (PIDD) and other rare diseases, who are currently undergoing treatment with our Board-Certified Allergists and Immunologists.
The CIIC deeply acknowledges the significant challenges faced by our patients. The journey of living with a rare disease or PIDD is fraught with hurdles, both medical and personal. To honor the extraordinary resilience and determination of these patients, the CIIC offers a one-time scholarship amounting to $5,000.
