Hemophilia Federation of America seeks archival records to recognize 25 years serving the bleeding disorders community

PR Newswire

WASHINGTON, July 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Hemophilia Federation of America will recognize 25 years serving the bleeding disorders community in 2019 with plans to display historical records at its annual symposium in San Diego.

The Washington, D.C.-based organization is currently collecting archival-type material, such as vintage medical equipment, supplies, rally posters, journals, diaries, newsletters, documents, photographs and other items representing the history of hemophilia and other bleeding disorders over the last 85 years. Historical memorabilia may come from members of the bleeding disorders community, media sources and reporters, D.C. legislative staff or anyone with material important to the history of bleeding disorders.

HFA began the historical project "Honoring Our Past, Building Our Future" for its 20th anniversary to pay tribute to the community's legacy of struggle, sacrifice, advocacy and perseverance. The organization will build on that history as it approaches 25 years as a nonprofit charitable organization in 2019.

HFA will have a history room exhibit displaying collected items during an annual symposium to be held April 4-6, 2019, in San Diego. Anyone with historical items is invited to email history@hemophiliafed.org with contribution suggestions to add to the existing collection.

For more information on the history project, visit www.hemophiliafed.org/exhibit/.
