HNC SOAR Educational Dinner
Hemophilia...the Female Connection
Hemophilia of North Carolina (HNC), along with Novo Nordisk and Matrix Health Group, invite you to a SOAR Educational Dinner and Program at Red Rocks Café in Charlotte. This event is open to women and girls age 12 and older with bleeding disorders.
Sue Geraghty, RN, MBA, will present Hemophilia...the Female Connection. Women and girls can have hemophilia. Learn about how hemophilia is inherited and the symptoms that women with hemophilia experience. The importance of building a relationship with your hemophilia treatment center and obtaining specialized care is also discussed.
HNC will also welcome Tammy Davenport, CEO of the Women’s Bleeding Disorder Coalition, who will share her story of being a woman with a bleeding disorder.
Although the topic and focus of the presentation is hemophilia, HNC invites all women affected by any bleeding disorder (include carriers, von Willebrand disease, rare factor deficiencies, and platelet disorders) to attend. We hope that you will have the opportunity to be part of the conversation and learn and share with other women in the bleeding disorders community.
Sue Geraghty has a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and in 1990 earned a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Colorado Denver. She retired in 2013 after working for 25 years as the Nurse Coordinator at the University of Colorado Denver Hemophilia and Thrombosis Center. Currently, she is working as an independent consultant in the areas of hemophilia and health care education.
Tammy Davenport is a woman with hemophilia. She has, through her own struggles for treatment and despite having her diagnosis, found her path in helping other women overcome their obstacles to getting proper health care.
RSVP by Tuesday, November 6, 2018. This event is being offered free to all HNC members, and registration is on a first-come first-served basis. Priority will be given to those affected by a bleeding disorder in the immediate family and who are not affiliated with a specialty pharmacy, home care, or pharmaceutical company that caters to the bleeding disorders community.
SOAR programs are open to all females with bleeding disorders, including those diagnosed with von Willebrand disease, hemophilia A and B, rare factor deficiencies (such as factors V, VII, X, and XIII), platelet disorders, and carriers of any of these disorders (both symptomatic and non-symptomatic). Our mission is to improve the quality of life for girls and women so they may SOAR to their full potential.
