Join us at the NHF’s Annual Meeting in Chicago

National Hemophilia Foundation / for all bleeding disorders

Get ready for a great time in the Windy City. This August, members of the bleeding disorders community will be gathering in Chicago, Illinois for the National Hemophilia Foundation’s 69th Annual Meeting.

This year we’re extra excited. If there’s one thing we know better than bleeding disorders, it’s Chicago. This is Shire Hematology’s hometown, after all.

The conference will be held at the Downtown Hyatt Regency Chicago from August 24-26.

Throughout the conference, be sure to stop by the Shire booth to see all of the informative activities we have prepared for you.

Are you creative? Do you have a story to tell? If so, you will definitely want to visit our booth to learn more about The Collective. The Collective is a group of photographers, visual artists, and musicians in the bleeding disorders community who use their creativity to inspire others. See examples of their work and experience the stories they have to tell. Watch a video that takes you behind the scenes to explore each artist’s creative process in greater detail. Learn about their personal struggles and triumphs and see the joy their work brings not only to them, but to others as well. More importantly, learn how you can become a member of The Collective and share your story and your creativity with the bleeding disorders community.
