- In-person Opportunities: In October 2017, HFA hosted our inaugural Young Adult Advocacy Summit. 15 young adults from across the country participated in the four-day event at HFA’s office in Washington, DC. Attendees received training on state and federal policy, advocacy, coalition building, communications, and health insurance, met with 19 Congressional Offices, visited the Capitol and monuments, and discussed issues facing young adults with bleeding disorders. Participants gained a deeper understanding of personal and legislative advocacy, developed ideas for engagement after the Summit, and formed lifelong friendships!
