HCC’s Future Leaders Program:

Hemophilia Council of California’s (HCC’s) Future Leaders Program provides leadership training and advocacy tools for teens and young adults affected by bleeding disorders. Leading up to their annual Legislative Day, Future Leaders gain understanding and skills on their role in the government process, insurance and programs that support care, educational opportunities, and how to be an effective advocate. Participants hear from statewide and national healthcare leaders, learn self-reliance, connect with their peers, meet with legislators at the State Capitol, have fun and find inspiration to share their voice where it matters most.

This year, HCC will offer designated introductory and basic advocacy programming for new Future Leaders and their loved ones and advanced training for returning Future Leaders, including national advocacy, advocating at home and mentorship.

ALL travel expenses, accommodations and meals will be provided by HCC.
