Welcome to National Hemophilia Foundation’s 2021 Washington Days!
NHF’s Washington Days is an opportunity for people affected by bleeding disorders to advocate for issues that are important to them. In 2020, Washington Days had more than 450 volunteer advocates from 45 states that met with legislators and staff to discuss federal funding for bleeding disorder programs and access to skilled nursing facilities (SNFs).
Washington Days 2021 will be a virtual experience with programming from March 1 – March 5. We are closely monitoring various legislative and policy opportunities as we prepare for our event in March. The issues and priorities will be announced later this year and a detailed agenda will be available in late January.
