HFA is proud to welcome our 2022 Policy & Government Affairs Interns to Washington, DC for the summer. Our interns work about 30-35 hours a week in our DC offices and conduct research and analysis to help create educational resources on a variety of issues related to bleeding disorders. Other responsibilities may include attending relevant virtual events, providing support for webinars, assisting with Public Affairs programs, and drafting bi-weekly blog posts.
Interns develop skills for health care policy and self-advocacy while shaping the next generation of advocacy leaders. Upon completion of the program, interns achieve the following program objectives:
- Gain broad exposure to state and federal activities.
- Engage in collaborative policy and advocacy efforts.
- Understand HFA's full spectrum of programming and services and how it serves the national bleeding disorders community.
- Gain awareness and knowledge of the public policy process to become a better bleeding disorder advocate.
Thank you to our sponsors – Biomarin, Genentech, Takeda, Pfizer, and Spark – who make this opportunity a reality for the young adults in our bleeding disorders community.
