Events are held throughout the year that provide opportunities for members of the hemophilia community to gather and discuss common issues in Northern, Central, and Southern Indiana locations. The staff of Hemophilia of Indiana assists in organizing a group, securing a dinner sponsor, and providing leadership and communication tools until the group becomes established. If you would like to attend a support group meeting or learn more about support groups in Indiana, please give the HoII offices a call. Information on groups and meetings is updated regularly on the calendar page. For questions, please contact Angel DiRuzza at 317-570-0039.
