Washington Days 2023

NHF’s Washington Days is an opportunity for people affected by inherited blood disorders to advocate for issues that are important to them. We are looking forward to gather together in person with hundreds of volunteer advocates from across the United States to meet with legislators and staff to discuss issues important to our community such as federal funding for bleeding disorder programs and supporting policies that increase affordability of coverage, and access to care.  

The issues at Washington Days 2023 will include:

  • Bleeding Disorders Awareness (March is our month!)
  • Federal Funding for Bleeding Disorders Program
  • HR 830 (HELP Copays Act)

Washington Days 2023 will be a fully in-person event. We will be following the best medical and scientific recommendations set by the Center for Disease Control, including the implementation of a detailed set of safety guidelines and procedures. 

Registration is required to attend Washington Days.

NHF's Infectious Disease Duty of Care

NHF is committed to creating a safe and healthy environment for all of our community members: consumer, chapter, providers, presenters, exhibitors, and staff. However, while vaccinations, negative COVID tests, observance of safety protocols, and exercise of personal discipline may reduce risk, an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 does remain in any public place where people are present.

Masks/Face Coverings
We are making it optional to wear masks at Washington Days. Wearing a mask is a personal choice and we ask that everyone makes their choice responsibly. Given the numbers of individuals coming from around the country, we encourage attendees to wear a mask throughout the meeting if they are, or someone in their home is, immunocompromised or at high risk for severe illness, or if they have a child who is 4 years of age or younger and thus is currently ineligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. All attendees should be mindful and respectful of other attendees' health choices.
