There are many challenges that the bleeding disorder community faces. Hemophilia of Indiana believes in empowering our community through education, so they are well-equipped to face those challenges. The goal of our educational programs is to educate and inform individuals and families about issues that they may face when having a bleeding disorder. We also understand that a bleeding disorder does not just affect the individual, but the entire family. That is why we offer a wide range of educational programs that the whole family can benefit from.
Annual Meeting – Every August, Hemophilia of Indiana holds an educational conference for the entire bleeding disorders community in Indiana. A variety of educational sessions are offered for adults, as well as an educational activity program for children.
Camp Brave Eagle – Camp Brave Eagle is week long summer camp for children with bleeding disorders, ages 7-16 and their siblings. It’s a wonderful opportunity for children with bleeding disorders to have a traditional summer camp experience.
Doug Thompson Teen Leadership Camp – Doug Thompson Teen Leadership Camp is an adventure camp for teen boys with bleeding disorder, ages 14-18. Campers enjoy adventure activities and educational programming focused on building leadership skills.
Support Groups – Our support groups were created to get our community together to educate and inform them on various topics. During our educational meetings we also provide a meal and a fun activity. Attendees are able to share experiences, give advice, offer support, and learn from one another.
