The Hemophilia Foundation of Michigan (HFM) is pleased and excited to host the 2020 National Conference for Women with Hemophilia, Being Visible: Continuing to Grow. Being Visible is an educational conference for women and teen girls, with broad geographic representation from around the country.
Those who are eligible to join us will experience an amazing weekend learning from national expert health care providers, and have opportunities to connect with other attendees who each bring their own unique wisdom and experience of living with hemophilia.
We invite women and teens 16 years and older to apply for the conference who meet the following qualifications:
· Have a diagnosis of hemophilia A or B, or are a carrier, or;
· Have a family history of hemophilia A or B and have bleeding symptoms such as heavy periods, easy bruising, or experiences with bleeding complications after dental work, surgery, or childbirth
There is NO CHARGE for this weekend.
Advocacy activities for women’s care and treatment are developing at a steady pace. We look forward to working with this year’s attendees to set new goals for advancing women and girls’ voices in the medical and policy realms. Interactive, educational session topics will include reproductive health, coping with heavy periods, advances in diagnosis and treatment, and topical psycho-social sessions.
Stay tuned for more information. If you have any questions, please contact Patrice Thomas at email@example.com.
