Our annual program in Erie, will be held during the summer this year. You will have a choice of which educational session to attend: Cracking the Code or Power of Empowerment.
Cracking the Code: Learn about DNA and how it makes you unique, how it is responsible for how your body functions, and how it can help scientists find treatments for conditions such as hemophilia. The goal of this program is to help you understand some of the basics so you can have further discussions with your health care provider, parents, and teachers.
Power of Empowerment: Learn about embracing your unique attributes, strengths, and skills; advocating for yourself; learning from others in the bleeding disorders community; and creating a support system through empowering partnerships.
Supervision will be provided for children ages 4-12, during the educational program. Younger children will need to stay in the room with you.

Registration and exhibits begin at 9:30 a.m.
