Ready for Anything: Back to School Event a Huge Success

 In News, NYCHC Events

Last Sunday, NYCHC held it’s second Bilingual Back to School Event. Hosted by the Latino Outreach Committee, and located at the NY Marriott Downtown, the Event was a day filled with learning, resources, and fun.

Families were welcomed to pick up school supplies and backpacks, give/get books in our book exchange, and learn with us. Among the sessions, topics included a thorough discussion on establishing a 504 or IEP plan for your child, learning how to talk with providers about your child’s condition, and a session for teens on preparing for next steps toward high school and college.


The children under 12 worked on a beautiful mural that expresses their emotional relationship to their bleeding disorders and their many achievements in spite of their condition. In light of the 9/11 anniversary, teens took a trip to the One World Observatory.

The day ended with a bilingual infusion session. Families learned techniques to infuse and self-infuse and were able to practice throughout the session.

All in all, it was another great success for our community!

We wish everyone a wonderful and productive school year!
