You are invited to join us Saturday and Sunday, October 7 & 8, 2023 on the beautiful campus of the University of San Diego.
We are excited to see and connect with so many of you. The weekend will include educational sessions with medical experts, ample social time, a separate space and program for teens, and an additional one for children.
Please add these dates to your calendar so you can participate in our first in-person Alport Connect event in more than 3 years. We’ll share event details as they become available. Be sure to register as a Free Member of ASF to receive event updates.

ALPORT CONNECT 2021 MEETING
With safety the utmost priority, ASF announced the return of our virtual-only Alport Connect weekend: Saturday, August 7th and Sunday, August 8th, 2021.
Thank you to all those who attended and participated in the 2021 gathering!
The no-charge, virtual-only event (for those age 18+) was open to the global Alport Community of patients, affected families/caregivers, and medical professionals. Like summer 2020, the event was hosted in the ASF Community app. You can view recordings of the 2021 live weekend panels on our YouTube Channel.

ALPORT CONNECT 2020 MEETING
Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Alport Connect Meeting was held virtually for the first time via the ASF Community app.
Some examples of what attendees said about the 2020 Virtual Alport Connect Meeting:
“It’s been a weird year but being able to connect virtually to others with Alport syndrome was amazing!”
“Clear, concise information that balanced both the medical aspect of Alport syndrome as well as the emotional aspect.”
“I learned so much! I really enjoyed hearing everyone’s personal experiences. I feel more informed than ever thanks to the doctors’ presentations.”
“I really feel that we took away new and valuable information from each session.”
“I’ve been following the Foundation since the beginning, the event honestly made me feel proud and grateful, it was so well done.”
