Invitation from CEO

Welcome to NHF’s 71st Bleeding Disorders Conference (BDC), a three-day educational experience that is designed to support the entire bleeding disorders community. Our community is not just the individuals affected by bleeding disorders. It is their parents and their children; the integrated medical team who care for them; the chapters staff and volunteers who support them.

We know that the bleeding disorders community is varied and diverse – from the adult men with hemophilia to the children with factor X deficiency; from the new chapter leaders to the seasoned physicians and researchers – all come together for one purpose: to enrich their understanding of bleeding disorders, and to connect with each other.

Each year, we aim to create education for our attendees that will help our attendees in real and practical ways. Our system of tracks for the sessions can help you find topics of interest to your own experience – but most sessions are open to everyone, and I encourage you to explore the different offerings in each track that spark your interest.
A few things to look forward to at this year’s conference:
  • A three-hour pre-conference on von Willebrand disease
  • A full track for rare factor deficiencies
  • Sessions for partners and spouses of affected individuals
  • A “mini-track” on basics of bleeding disorders
  • Sessions to improve your infusion technique
  • A three-day track for teens and young adults
  • Proven fundraising and management techniques for chapter staff
  • Full tracks for social workers, nurses, physical therapists, and physicians
There will also be plenty of opportunities to connect with one another at our social and networking events, and as always, the exhibit hall will allow you to see the latest products and services our sponsors and exhibitors have to offer.
On behalf of all of us at NHF and our host chapter, Hemophilia of Southern California, I hope to see you in Anaheim.
