Our host member organization for Symposium 2018 introduces us to all Cleveland has to offer!

Our 2017 Symposium, “Hope Ignites”, brought about 1,100 members of the bleeding disorders community from around the country together in Providence, RI! 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 2018?

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.

What Participants Say 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.”

“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.”
