The British Columbia CommUnity Connect Group is exclusively for Primary Immunodeficiency patients and their family members/caregivers to share experiences and gain support from the safety of their own homes.
These groups are hosted by one of our fantastic volunteers, who are themselves members with lived experience of Primary Immunodeficiency. The hosts encourage a sense of community, a welcoming environment and great discussions, ensuring everyone is listened to and supports one another.
You can join whichever CommUnity Connect group best fits your schedule. You must be over the age of 19 to join. Events are free but require registration (see Zoom link below). Feel free to drop-in and stay for as long as you want.
