National Conference for Women with Hemophilia

DESCRIPTION

The Hemophilia Foundation of Michigan (HFM) is pleased and excited to host 2019 National Conference for Women with Hemophilia, Being Visible: Hear Our Voices. Being Visible is an educational conference for women, with broad geographic representation from around the country. Women currently diagnosed with hemophilia or diagnosed as a hemophilia carrier (symptomatic) are invited to apply to attend, along with medical providers and psycho-social professionals. Last year’s conference was the first of its kind in the United States and 103 women from 32 states attended; we expect a larger number of attendees from across the country to attend this year.
