Take a look at our recap video from Symposium 2017 in beautiful downtown Providence, Rhode Island!

Our 2017 Symposium, “Hope Ignites”, brought together over 1,100 members of the bleeding disorders community from around the country for a fantastic weekend in Rhode Island! This meeting was our biggest yet and would not have been possible without support from all of our sponsors.

Why Should I Come to Symposium?

At HFA, we understand that bleeding disorders are not a one size fits all medical condition. Dealing with or caring for a loved one with a bleeding disorder is a lifelong journey requiring diligence and flexibility in handling the challenges along the way.

HFA Symposium offers community members the opportunity to learn and grow personally and collectively in becoming strong self-advocates! During our powerful sessions, community members can connect on a personal level with our presenters.
