HFA Symposium

Symposium is a family-friendly conference where topics that affect the entire family living with a bleeding disorder are addressed.  HFA understands 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. GHA’s scholarship application closed January 20, 2020.
