Essay Contest Winners Announced

 In News, Teens / Young Adults

We had a wonderful turn out for our You Will Be Found Essay Contest and had to make some tough decisions.  Thank you to all the people that submitted essays.

The New York City Hemophilia Chapter is committed to expanding programming for mental health and well-being for people with bleeding disorders. This essay contest was a small step in the process to expand conversations about mental health. The ultimate goal is to get people thinking about mental health in new ways and connect more with others about this topic. We will be sharing the winning essays with you soon.
