NHF’s Annual Bleeding Disorders Conference (BDC) is our signature event and highlights our strong commitment to education. Leading community members and experts on hemophilia and other bleeding disorders come together every year to present the most recent advances, exchange the latest science and discuss the newest clinical applications designed to improve patient care.

Through an extensive lineup of educational sessions for patients, medical provider, chapters, poster and oral communications, state-of-the-art lectures, exhibits and professional networking opportunities, the Conference promotes important advancement for the community.


HFA’s Symposium is an annual community-centered educational event that draws hundreds of members from the bleeding disorders community together to share information, learn new advancements and build a network of support!  For more information on this HFA meeting, please visit their website: and click on Programs, Events, Symposium.
