National meetings make for a great vacation!

A little less than three months ago I was in Santa Clara, California, for the Hemophilia Federation of America's (HFA) annual symposium. What's a symposium you might ask? You could think of it as a big conference where people from all over the bleeding disorder community come together to talk about important issues and topics. You could also describe this yearly event as an all-out fun fest where you get to meet new friends and hang out with old ones on the streets of a new city.

I like to think of the symposium as a mixture of both. Although I think it's very important to go to as many sessions as possible and participate in the discussion about how we can all be better advocates for our community; my main goal is to meet newcomers and show them just how fun a weekend with bleeders can be. 

Time for a math problem:

Former Miss Rhode Island + up-and-coming comedian + basketball game + information on new longer-lasting products + choreographed dancing = one hell of a weekend.

Join us at the next national meeting in Orlando, Florida, with the National Hemophilia Foundation. Register now!
