NHF's 67th Annual Meeting

NHF's Annual Meeting

Date: 
August 13, 2015 to August 15, 2015

Dallas, TX
United States

Holding the National Hemophilia Foundation’s (NHF’s) 67th Annual Meeting in Dallas, Texas, August 13-15, 2015, meant that we had the opportunity to host a bigger, better meeting because everybody knows that Dallas does everything in a BIG way!

Nearly 3,000 people gathered for our annual three-day conference, “Boots on the Ground,” attending our biggest lineup of sessions ever provided--more than 95—an all-time record. Among them were expanded programming for those with von Willebrand disease (VWD),  roundtables for families on everything from advocating in the ER to stress-free travel, Spanish sessions and many updates on research, clinical trials and treatment breakthroughs. Consumers got updates on the My Life, Our Future genotyping initiative, how the ATHN database is launching studies on switching products and radionuclide synovectomy, and exciting updates on hepatitis C virus (HCV) oral therapies, now curing patients in the bleeding disorders community.

Once again, the Exhibit Hall drew young and old alike to engage with balloon artists, face painters, stilt walkers and hands-on events at many of the booths. Our Final Night Event, sponsored by Biogen, was a rootin’ tootin’ roundup at the Circle R Ranch, with gun slingin’ cowboys, armadillo races and a mini rodeo.

Hope to see y’all next year in Orlando, Florida, July 21-23, for our 68th Annual Meeting, in conjunction with the World Federation of Hemophilia’s (WFH) World Congress, July 24-28, 2016.
