The National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) is hosting its 59th Annual Meeting in
Orlando, Florida, November 1-3, 2007. The theme is “Join us for the Journey” and we
encourage all of you to join us for three full days of programs, workshops, networking
opportunities and social activities. At the Annual Meeting, more than 2,000 consumers,
families, healthcare providers and industry representatives all congregate for a common
purpose—to receive the latest medical/health information, meet others with the same
concerns and connect with old friends and new.
This year’s line-up includes consumer workshops on inhibitors and emergency
preparedness; a two-day physician/researcher track; hydrotherapy interventions for
physical therapists; and an ethics symposium for social workers. There will be panel
discussions and workshops for chapter presidents, executive directors and staff. And
there will be fun social events for everyone.
If you’ve always wanted to explore Orlando, here’s your chance. We will be staying at
the Orlando World Center Marriott Resort & Convention Center, a full-service resort on
200 acres. It has six swimming pools with poolside activities for children and teens;
basketball and sand volleyball courts; lighted tennis courts; an 18-hole championship golf
course and a fitness center and spa. It is close to such world-famous attractions as Walt
Disney World, SeaWorld Orlando and Universal Studios Florida.
