NYCHC Annual Meeting a Huge Success
Nearly 300 members of the local bleeding disorders community came together on December 4th for a day of laughter, learning and lunch at the New York City Hemophilia Chapter 2011 Annual Meeting. It was our highest attendance at any Chapter program outside of the New York City Hemophilia Walk. The event, which was held at the Downtown Marriott Hotel, featured a variety of educational and fun sessions for adults and children. The main session featured a Chapter Update by NYCHC President and Founder Melissa Penn. Penn talked about all of growth the Chapter had experienced in the last year as well as some of the plans underway for the future. The update was followed by a panel discussion entitled “Factor Today and Tomorrow” with participation by representatives of six of the clotting factor manufacturers.
