BENEFITING: NATIONAL HEMOPHILIA FOUNDATION
This Fundraiser's Goal is to promote and help fund the Hemophilia Foundation National Youth Leadership Institute's work and members. The NYLI is a program arm of the National Hemophilia Foundation, an organization whose purpose is to spread awareness and education about bleeding disorders, as well as promote advocacy at local and national levels.
The NHF and NYLI promote young adults from ages 18-24 to take extra action in their communities as well as promoting awareness and allowing these young leaders to attend the NHF's Annual Meeting, where worldwide and national heads of industry and science meet every year to share the latest in medical advancements, provide education on a variety of bleeding disorder relate topics, and allow family and experts in multiple fields to network in a friendly conference environment.
The NYLI itself conducts a series of focused education programs during the conference, and provides an excellent course of training for young leaders such as myself. I have personally benefited from being able to meet and interact with the awesome team of NYLI leaders and mentors. This fundraiser will benefit some great friends and wonderful educators and allow them to continue offering motivation and education to young leaders who will take their skills not only into the Hemophilia Community but the world at large.
