On Thursday, August 25, U.S. Rep. Abigail Spanberger joined local healthcare leaders and Virginians living with chronic diseases to discuss how the Inflation Reduction Act — which Spanberger helped pass and the President signed into law — will lower drug costs for seniors and extend health insurance tax credits for middle-class families. Thank you to VHF volunteer and advocate, Steve Spasojevich who was able to attend and share his family’s story – thanks Steve!

“I was honored to represent the Virginia Hemophilia Foundation, and all members of the bleeding disorder community, at the press conference on the Inflation Reduction Act hosted by Representative Spanberger. I shared how vital the extensions of protections in the Affordable Care Act are to members of the community in order to access the healthcare needed to survive. It was a great experience, and I am so glad that the voices of the bleeding disorder community are being heard.”
