What We Do
SWOHF monitors legislation that affects the bleeding disorders community and advocates for changes in policy when needed. We work hard to keep up to date on issues and work to educate our local politicians and health care officials about bleeding disorders and the resources for those affected to maintain the quality of life.
You Can Make a Difference!
You have the power to impact the future of your own access to better treatment and care through your own advocacy. Policymakers in Columbus, OH and Washington, DC need to hear from you in order to make educated and informed decisions on legislation impacting you and your family. Their awareness of bleeding disorders starts with you. Become your own advocate and make a difference.
How Can You Engage Your Legislators?
As a constituent, advocacy is a powerful tool. There are many ways you can reach your legislators. The most common and effective forms are writing a letter, sending an email, calling your legislator, and meeting with your legislator and/or their staff.
