by National Hemophilia Foundation


Connections for Learning provides funding for individuals with bleeding disorders to attend the National Hemophilia Foundation Annual Meeting to gain the relevant experience and practical knowledge they need to better navigate life with a chronic illness.

Every year thousands of individuals with bleeding disorders miss out on vital educational opportunities because of personal obstacles. Many of these individuals struggle with the management of their chronic illness and lack effective support due to geographic, cultural, social, and/or economic barriers.


This program funds access for these individuals to attend NHF's Annual Meeting where they will meet and learn from those affected by bleeding disorders, as well as experts in the field. It is the largest gathering of its kind in the country, offering a wealth of information to address every aspect of living with a bleeding disorder. According to past participants, it is a life-changing experience for everyone, regardless of gender, age, race, religion, or hometown.

Long-Term Impact

NHF is committing $100,000 to the Connections for Learning Program but we need your help. This funding will help ensure everyone who needs to attend NHFs Annual Meeting can attend.
