View our Preliminary Symposium Agenda

In 2015, we partnered with our member organization, Gateway Hemophilia Association, and brought together over 850 members of the bleeding disorders community from around the country to St. Louis! This meeting was our biggest yet, and would not have been possible without support from our sponsors.

Why Should I Come to Symposium 2016?

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.
