From educators to researchers, lawyers to grant writers, our team is united by our passion for the mission of HFA. We鈥檝e grown over the past 25 years from a small, grassroots, all-volunteer nonprofit organization, but we haven鈥檛 wavered from our mission of assisting, educating, and advocating for the bleeding disorders community.
