Education Day

Education Day 2013:

Get out your pencil and paper and jump into the annual HHF Education Day on February 23, 2013. Being part of the affected community  means learning about new research and resources as well as connecting with other community members – supporting each other and finding support.

HHF, the Hemophilia Treatment Center (HTC), community members, and industry partners will provide a day full of educational sessions and discussions on topics such as: the Victory for Women Campaign, managing finances related to Hemophilia; physical activity and bleeding disorders; an HTC update; advocacy, and much, much more!  Participants will have an opportunity to interact with our corporate partners through a booth exhibit area and hosted lunch table topics.
