National Hemophilia Foundation's Annual Meeting

ATTENTION FIRST-TIME ANNUAL MEETING ATTENDEES!

Educational Participant Grants Available for NHF’s 66 th Annual Meeting – “Nothing About Us Without Us”

 

The National Hemophilia Foundation is pleased to offer Educational Participant Grants for first-time attendees to its 66th Annual Meeting, in Washington, DC, September 18-20, 2014. The Annual Meeting enables the bleeding disorders community to come together and exchange information on a wide variety of topics, from the basics of hemophilia and von Willebrand disease to the latest research breakthroughs and new drugs on the market. It is the premier opportunity for networking and support for individuals and families affected by bleeding disorders. NHF currently provides $35,000 annually to a number of families who wish to attend the meeting. There they can take advantage of the wealth of information and educational opportunities during the Annual Meeting.

 

Eligibility

To provide a more inclusive Annual Meeting, NHF offers a limited number of Educational Participant Grants to individuals and/or families with bleeding disorders attending the Annual Meeting for the first time.  We would especially like to provide assistance to those unable to attend due to personal obstacles or other barriers.  Awards will be based on these factors, as well as on need. 

 

Only applicants from United States and its Territories will be eligible to apply for the grant. If you are awarded the Educational Participant Grant you must be residing in the United States or its Territories at the time of travel. NHF staff and their relatives are not eligible to apply.

  • Airfare or Mileage
