Family Education Weekend

One of our most popular programs is Family Education Weekend (FEW), the only program of its kind in the Greater St. Louis area. It provides those affected by bleeding disorders an opportunity to learn about the latest trends in the bleeding disorders community while connecting with other families that are experiencing some of the same health issues. It helps them to become more knowledgeable about their disorder and to develop a stronger support system that benefits the emotional health of individuals. Contact Bridget at Info@GatewayHemophilia.org with any questions.

**FEW is only for those residing in the GHA service area (service area includes southern Illinois and eastern Missouri) with a bleeding disorder, attending as a consumer. The registration deadline is June 19, 2023.

FEW will take place July 14- 15, 2023 at The Doubletree Chesterfield, 16625 Swingley Ridge Road, Chesterfield, MO 63017.
