On behalf of all of us, at the Hemophilia Federation of America, we’d like to thank you for attending this year’s Symposium, Honoring Our Past, Building Our Future.
It was great to celebrate our 20th anniversary with over 800 moms, dads, caregivers, spouses, siblings, and stakeholders from across the country. Our attendees went home with tools, tips, and educational materials to use on their journey of becoming strong self-advocates! Symposium also fosters mentoring, sharing, and learning from others in the bleeding disorders community.
In an effort to better serve the community, we need your help and feedback. Please share your thoughts and take a short survey about this year’s Symposium.
Why should I come to Symposium 2015?
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.”
