Advocating for Yourself as a Woman
An HNC SOAR Women's Educational Program & Dinner
Wednesday, May 17, 2017 – 6:30pm-8:30pm
Hemophilia of North Carolina (HNC) invites you to a SOAR Women’s Dinner on Wednesday, May 17 from 6:30pm-8:30pm. Continuing with our theme of advocacy among women with bleeding disorders, hear from the National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) as they present the program Advocating for Yourself as a Woman. As a woman with a bleeding disorder, you will often face a lack of understanding from health care providers, co-workers, friends and policy-makers about how your diagnosis affects you. This session teaches communication strategy and tools for women to advocate for their needs.
SOAR is an HNC program for women and girls with bleeding disorders, including von Willebrand disease, platelet disorders, rare factor deficiencies, and women affected by hemophilia as either carriers who are symptomatic or officially diagnosed with hemophilia. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for girls and women so they may SOAR to their full potential.
This dinner is being offered free to HNC members for women ages 16 and up. Because of space constraints, priority will be given to HNC members who are part of the SOAR Program and are unaffiliated with home care, pharmaceutical, and other related industries. If your group includes more than four persons, please contact the HNC office before registering.
