Travel Grants for National Meetings

Travel Grants for National Meetings

VHF is pleased to offer travel grants to attend national meetings. National meetings enable our community to come together and exchange information on a wide variety of topics, from the basics of diagnosis to the most relevant developments in treatment and technology. It is the premier opportunity for networking and support for individuals and families affected by inherited bleeding disorders. 

Meeting: National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) Washington Days

NHF’s Washington Days is an opportunity for people affected by inherited blood disorders to advocate for issues that are important to them. In 2021, Washington Days had more than 400 volunteer advocates from 44 states that met with legislators and staff to discuss federal funding for bleeding disorder programs and support policies that increase affordability of coverage and access to care.

Washington Days 2022 will be an entirely virtual experience. NHF is closely monitoring various legislative and policy opportunities as they prepare for their event in March. The issues and priorities for Washington Days 2022 will be announced at the start of the new year. »Go here to learn more
