Join NHF in DC and Tell Congress about Issues that Affect You

Hemophilia of North Carolina is planning to send a group to participate in Washington Days. If you are interested in attending, please contact Charlene Cowell, Executive Director at (800) 990-5557 or info@hemophilia-nc.org.

Registration for Washington Days 2015 is now open! NHF’s annual Washington Days will be held on Wednesday, February 25th, 2015 through Friday, February 27th, 2015.

This is your opportunity to join others from the bleeding disorders community in Washington, DC, to tell elected officials in Congress about the issues that affect you and your family.

The Issues

  • Funding for federal hemophilia programs
  • Access to skilled nursing facilities for Medicare beneficiaries

The NHF public policy team is working on a potential third issue that will be announced soon.

Tentative Agenda

  • Wednesday - We ask that attendees plan to arrive Wednesday afternoon, and depart Friday afternoon. The Washington Days program will begin with a first-time attendee workshop on Wednesday afternoon. Our interactive review of the fact sheets and talking points for all participants will take place Wednesday evening and will be followed by a Welcome Dinner Reception.
  • Thursday - On Thursday we hit the Hill for a full day of face-to-face meetings with members of Congress and their staff. Dinner on Thursday (sponsored by Novo Nordisk) will again be dedicated to celebrating the advocacy efforts of our volunteers in their local communities.
  • Friday - We close on Friday after the State Advocacy Workshop, a training program that explores state-specific issues and improves our effectiveness on the state level.
