The Symposium enables our community to come together and exchange information on a wide variety of topics, from the basics of diagnosis to the most recent and relevant developments in treatment and technology. It is an excellent opportunity for networking and support for individuals and families affected by bleeding disorders.


WPCNHF wishes to support individuals and/or families with bleeding disorders to attend the Hemophilia Federation of America’s Symposium. Grant recipients will be determined through an equitable selection process conducted by a volunteer review team. Preference will be given to those who have not previously attended a Hemophilia Federation of America’s Symposium. The grant will cover (up to) 2 family members, and potentially more, based on the availability of funds. Applicants must be at least 18 years old and live in WPCNHF’s territory or be treated at the Hemophilia Center of Western PA to be considered.

  • Hotel Room
  • Symposium Registration Fees
