Symposium 2014_History RoomnSymposium 2015 is coming to St. Louis!

In 2015, we want to recognize the unique perspectives that every patient, family, and caregiver brings as we celebrate a Gateway to a Stronger Community! We are excited for the first time to team up with one of our member organizations, Gateway Hemophilia Association, to bring you the most dynamic and largest Symposium to date!

Symposium is an annual community-centered educational event that draws hundreds of members from the bleeding disorders community together to share information, learn new advancements, and build a network of support! Each year, we offer travel scholarships to first time attendees who need financial assistance.

We hope you will join us for this special celebration to reconnect and meet new community members in St. Louis!

Why should I come to Symposium 2015?

Symposium 2014

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. Take a look at what some of our past participants have said about Symposium:

Symposium 2014_kids“HFA Symposium gave us the chance to discuss topics in depth with knowledgeable speakers and participants with shared experiences.”

“Symposium brings together community in a mentoring, fellowship, interactive place and this is a very good idea.”

“Sharing stories lets us realize we are not alone.”


“Knowing about other families' life experience and learning to solve problems and advocate for ourselves.”

“At Symposium, we learned that one family, one person can make a difference. People are listening–we all have something to say.”
