CSL Behring Awards Multi-year Commitment to the HFA Voices Campaign
Washington, D.C. – The Hemophilia Federation of America was recently awarded a multi-year commitment to its Voices Campaign. The HFA launched the program in May of 2009 at its annual meeting in Indianapolis, IN and has continued to build positive momentum since.
“Through the Voices Campaign, stories will be utilized to inform Congress, media and the public of the specific challenges, issues and concerns impacting the bleeding disorders community. Ultimately, Voices plays a key role in our advocacy outreach efforts and is especially important with the ongoing discussion of health care reform. The HFA appreciates CSL Behring’s commitment to our advocacy efforts and is delighted at the ongoing support,” announced Kimberly Haugstad, Executive Director.
Dennis Jackman, Senior Vice President, Public Affairs, recently stated, “CSL Behring is excited to support HFA’s efforts to empower patients to tell their stories so that policy makers can make policies while literally seeing the human face of the patients. This is a novel program utilizing the newest social media technology to get across very human concerns and is consistent with CSL Behring’s strong commitment to advocacy for patients.”
The Hemophilia Federation of America is a national 501(c)(3) organization consisting of 30 member organizations and numerous individual members who offer assistance and grassroots advocacy on behalf of the bleeding disorders community. Incorporated in 1994, the HFA provides programs and services to improve the quality of life for persons with hemophilia and von Willebrand disease (VWD).
