TRAVEL GRANTS

 
The National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) is pleased to offer Connections for Learning and Anna DeSimone Grants for those who want to attend its Bleeding Disorders Conference in Anaheim, California, October 3-5, 2019. NHF’s Bleeding Disorders Conference enables the bleeding disorders community to come together and exchange information on a wide variety of topics, from the basics of hemophilia, von Willebrand disease and other rare bleeding disorders, to the latest research breakthroughs and new drug therapies. Further, the three-day conference provides the premier opportunity for networking and support for individuals and families affected by bleeding disorders.

NHF has committed to providing funding to a number of families or individuals who want to attend its Conference. There, they can take advantage of the wealth of information and educational opportunities, and get to know other families coping with a bleeding disorder.

Who’s Eligible


To provide a more inclusive Conference, NHF offers a limited number of Connections for Learning Grants to individuals and/or families with bleeding disorders who wish to attend the Bleeding Disorders Conference for the first time or to returning families.  While any returning individuals/families are welcome to apply, preference is given to those who have not been able to attend in many years. Additionally, any woman with a bleeding disorder who wishes to attend the Bleeding Disorders Conference can apply for the Anna DeSimone Grant. The grant was established to honor the memory of Anna DeSimone, a tireless advocate for issues affecting women with bleeding disorders, former staff member of NHF and founding member of the Foundation for Women and Girls with Blood Disorders. NHF would especially like to provide assistance to those unable to attend due to personal obstacles or other barriers.
