The Hemophilia of North Carolina (HNC) Annual Meeting is the state's largest gathering for the bleeding disorders community and a terrific educational opportunity. Now a two-day event, we look forward to making this 47th annual conference even bigger with your help and support! As always, this is a great chance for you to network with fellow members and to hear from the experts on topics relevant to you.

At the end of the second day, we'll have raffles and door prizes! You must be present to win.


We are all advocates! According to dictionary.com the definition of advocacy is the act of pleading for, supporting, or recommending. You will often hear HNC talk about advocacy, but what does it mean for you? Learn more about how advocacy can help you, and best practices to help you advocate.

As always, you will have the chance to meet and connect with other families and individuals who share the same challenges.

We look forward to seeing you as we learn how Advocacy Can Help You!.
