Our Mission ... In Action
We connect people in the bleeding disorder community to available, applicable resources and to one another. Through connection we don't have to go through this alone.
We fight to protect access to quality healthcare and treatments we need to live healthy lives, but we can't do it without your voice. Discover how you and your family can make a big difference by joining our advocacy efforts.
We are committed to trailblazing the way for those affected by bleeding disorders. We encourage our community members to step out into nature, to forage ahead on their own path of independence.
We are committed to educating people inside and outside the bleeding disorder community. Education is empowerment and we strive to encourage independence through learning.
Dear National Hemophilia Foundation Community, Staff and Friends,
Every day, chapters across the country work with the blood and bleeding disorders community around them. Since 2021, Jacob Murdock has served as Chapter Executive Director in Nevada. He took time out of his busy schedule to tell us why loves the Nevada Chapter.
How long has your Chapter been serving the community?
We were founded as the Hemophilia Foundation of Nevada in 1990. We became a national chapter of NHF in 2011. The chapter was founded by Renee Paper, a nurse and a pioneer in the treatment of women with bleeding disorders.
The Rare Diseases Diversity Coalition (RDDC) is currently seeking applicants for its 2023 Rare Disease Fellowship Program, which is aimed at inspiring the next generation of the medical workforce to work in the rare disease space and achieve greater health equity for people of color living with rare diseases.
The Fellowship allows rare disease organizations to collaborate with fellows to better understand the health impacts of that disease on communities of color. In addition, the Fellow will gain a greater awareness of the challenges of living with rare diseases
