Kids Educational Program

About

We have designed two distinct programs for children 12 years old and younger that will keep them happy, captivated, and excited! Both programs include daily meals (lunch & snacks) during Kids Program hours. Children 9 - 12 years old will also have educational sessions. Our Kids Program is divided into three age categories: children under 4, 5 - 8 years old, and 9 - 12 years old. Children are supervised by a licensed and bonded childcare provider. 

Registration for our Kids Program must be completed by Friday, July 29, 2022.

There will be NO on-site registration.

Lice Policy 

NHF has a NO LICE POLICY consistent with the CDC guideline on lice prevention.
Each child will be screened for lice upon arrival at the Kids Program. The “NO NITS” policy means that even if a child has recently been treated for lice but is still found to have nits (eggs) or dead lice in the hair, the child will not be allowed into the Kids Program and parents will be responsible for their children throughout the Conference.

Day Care

Attendees who require day care outside of the above Kid’s Program for NHF Bleeding Disorders Conference are invited to make arrangements either through their hotel or on their own.
