The World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) is committed to bringing the bleeding disorders community together in the name of Treatment for All. This commitment is especially important during the COVID-19 crisis. In June 2020, we will be bringing our community together virtually.
The WFH is pleased to announce the launch of the WFH Virtual Summit: Connecting the Global Bleeding Disorders Community. This series of live and recorded sessions will take place from Monday June 15 to Friday June 19, 2020 and will allow you to connect with the community and increase your knowledge from the comfort of your home. The approximate time slot will be 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT), 1 p.m. to 5 p.m GMT-4. More details to follow.
We are also working on potential pre and post Virtual Summit sessions that will take place the week before and/or after that we will be announcing soon.
The WFH is pleased to offer this inaugural WFH Virtual Summit free of charge to the entire bleeding disorders community. In order for the WFH to plan the logistics of this important event, please register your interest in participating here. We will send you more information as it becomes available.
