This event is over.


Hemophilia of North Carolina (HNC), along with CSL Behring and BioMatrix Specialty Pharmacy, invites you to dinner and an educational presentation, Transition to High School, presented by Shelby Smoak. Whether you are already in high school or will be going to high school in the future, this session will highlight the importance of keeping routines, making responsible decisions, adhering to medical protocols, and what to disclose and to whom.

Shelby Smoak is a former college professor with an M.A. in English and creative writing and a Ph.D. in literature. His memoir, Bleeder, has won several awards, and his band Bleeder released their debut album in 2017. As an individual with a bleeding disorder, Shelby has always been involved in advocacy and has been a board member for Hemophilia Association of the Capital Area (HACA).

This program will provide an excellent opportunity for learning and connecting with others in the community.


This event is being offered free to all HNC members. Because of space constraints, priority will be given to HNC members who 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.

optional: After the educational presentation is complete, attendees will have an opportunity to speak with CSL Behring and BioMatrix Specialty Pharmacy representatives about products and services they offer to the community.

PLEASE NOTE: Information about these companies' products and services is being provided as a public service only. As a non-profit advocate for the bleeding disorders community, Hemophilia of North Carolina does not endorse any treatment products, manufacturers, home care services, or individual medical providers.
