Agenda & Programming
We plan to post information soon on how we plan to update Symposium into a virtual event.
Hemophilia Federation of America is excited to have inspirational speaker, Lindsay Vos, of Brownstown, Michigan,聽 as our keynote speaker for 2020 Symposium. Vos鈥檚 story began when she spent most of her life suffering from migraines and eventually experiencing left-sided weakness and slurred speech. But doctors dismissed her symptoms as anxiety whenever she sought treatment or a proper diagnosis. After her mother shared a family history of arteriovenous malformation, Lindsay was finally properly diagnosed and in 2017 underwent surgery to correct AVM. Her medical history didn鈥檛 end there.

Why Should I Participate in a Virtual Symposium?
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!
