2017/2018 NOW Conference
Don't miss out on this exciting opportunity to be part of the 2017-2018 Bi-Annual NOW Conferences, both being held in Phoenix, AZ at the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort. Registration opens on June 30, 2017 for both conferences. Each conference will have the same agenda.
What is NOW?
NOW stands for National Outreach for von Willebrand. Over the years, von Willebrand Disease (VWD) has always been "lumped" in with hemophilia. Well, NOW is the time to focus exclusively on von Willebrand Disease! NOW is a national educational symposium for individuals and families who are living with this chronic disease. It is a forum to learn about new medical advances, gain tools that can help you manage VWD and to share with others facing the same or similar challenges. We will bring in expert healthcare professionals who can best address the issues unique to VWD. Funded through a grant by CSL Behring, the Arizona Hemophilia Association is excited to host this national conference focused specifically on von Willebrand Disease.
Who is Eligible?
Attendees must have von Willebrand Disease and/or be a caretaker of someone who has it. The conference is funded to accept a limited number of participants. We encourage you to reach out to the VWD Community in your local area regarding this unique opportunity. Families are welcome and there will be educational activities and daycare for children.
