Virtual Dinner Program – Being Prepared for a Hemophilia Emergency:

Join us virtually for an evening of education. Our Virtual Educational Dinner Programs are open to all patients with a bleeding disorder and their immediate family members.

Bleeding disorder participants and their immediate family (living in our service area) who register by October 7 and are logged in for the full 1.5-hour program will receive a GrubHub Gift Card* for HASDC to purchase dinner on a later date. *One per family. 

In partnership with Bayer HealthCare. This is a discussion regarding challenges faced by patients, families and health care providers in our bleeding disorders community while preparing for or faced with an emergency situation. What to do first, what supplies to have ready, etc. We will also cover travel requirements, including traveling with factor and necessary documents. This will be an interactive sharing of ideas, opinions, experiences and solutions which hopefully benefit attendees.

This program will be presented in English ONLY.
