This year’s Hope Conference, a national educational event presented by Hope Charities for the bleeding disorders community, is set for Nov. 2-4 in Florida, with an online option as well.

The annual conference, to be presented at the Baytowne Conference Center, in Miramar Beach, is designed to bring together people living with bleeding conditions, such as hemophilia, as well as their families, caregivers, friends and other advocates.

“This is an annual patient education event where people living with bleeding disorders come to learn, grow and develop,” Hope states on a conference webpage.

“Hope Conference is focused on education, empowerment, and community. We are proud to bring a diverse group of attendees living with bleeding disorders from around the United States,” the webpage states.

The event is free for all except for specialty pharmacies, treatment manufacturers, or other industry representatives, who must pay a $600 fee. All attendees are responsible for their travel and lodging. Registration is now open for all participants.

“You will still have access to everything going on at Hope Conference from the comfort of your own living room or office,” Hope Charities notes on a webpage about the conference’s online presentation.

“You will join other individuals from around the country who live with a bleeding disorder, win some amazing prizes given away at every session, and learn from some incredible speakers,” the webpage further states.
