It was funny listening to all the podcasts about ways to become more engaged and the last sentence I’m writing is “successful interest groups must be able to build coalitions with other interest groups in the search for workable majorities.” This is what we were discussing when we met in KY, which may turn into a possible project for me. At our annual meeting in VA, we invited a delegate to speak about advocacy. After we talked hemophilia numbers-how many are affected, how many in VA-he gave this same advice. Is the hemophilia community already part of a rare disease coalition? I think this needs explored, it may give us more force in Washington.
