HACA’s von Willebrand Education Day!

July 23 @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pm

Bad Blood: A Cautionary Tale

For two years, HACA’s annual von Willebrand disease summer education event was virtual via Zoom. On Saturday, July 23, we were able to gather again in person at the Walter Reed Recreation Center in Arlington, VA. The event kicked off with a program on vWD updated guidlines, led by Katherine Cabrera of NHF.  After a delicious lunch from Texas Jack’s Barbecue, Kristin Prior of CSL Behring shared her story of her life as both an affected individual and mother of a young man with vWD and hemophilia.

The day concluded with a branded program on Vonvendi by Takeda. Takeda was the top sponsor at our 2021 Fall Festival and Walk, and one of the benefits is presentation of a branded program on a company product. Thanks to this year’s event sponsors CSL Behring, CVS Specialty, Octapharma and Takeda.
