Travel Grants

The National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) is pleased to offer Connections for Learning and Anna DeSimone Grants for those who want to attend the Bleeding Disorders Conference in Atlanta, August 6-8, 2020. NHF’s Bleeding Disorders Conference enables communities to come together, network, learn and exchange information on a wide variety of topics including the basics of hemophilia & von Willebrand disease, rare bleeding disorders, research breakthroughs and new drug therapies. 

NHF is committed to providing funding to a number of families or individuals who want to attend the conference. With this funding, individuals and families can take advantage of the wealth of information, educational opportunities, support, and get to know others in the bleeding disorders community.
