Is Symposium for me and my family?
Yes! Symposium is a family-friendly conference where topics that affect the entire family living with a bleeding disorder are addressed. 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:
“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.”
