HNC Adult Retreat
April 28-29, 2012
Graylyn International Conference Center
Hemophilia of North Carolina has been pleased to offer a relaxing and informative weekend retreat to its adult members (age 21 and over) with a bleeding disorder, or parent(s) of a child with a bleeding disorder. Each HNC attendee was able to bring one adult guest. This event began with breakfast at 10am and the program at 11am on Saturday, April 28th and concluded at 12 noon Sunday, April 29th, 2012.
We hosted the retreat at the beautiful Graylyn International Conference Center. The center offers a private estate of one's very own! Just minutes from downtown Winston-Salem, Graylyn's vast 55-acre property allows visitors to experience a world away from the bustle of city streets. Graylyn was once one of the largest private homes in North Carolina.
All accommodations, meals, refreshments and activities were provided at no cost to HNC members and their guests through the generous support of our sponsors and donors.
This special retreat featured:
Inalex Communications returned this year to present the The Family Tune Up workshop, created especially for the bleeding disorder community. This workshop is intended for both men and women who have children with a bleeding disorder, as well as for adults with bleeding disorders and those that support them. It is presented in four major components: looking at both positive and negative ways men and women handle their anger, assertiveness, and aggression; how stress can become chronic and significantly impair your health; how bleeding disorders create special challenges; and opportunities for meaningful connections between you and your partner.
