Each year Great Lakes Hemophilia Foundation hosts the Wisconsin Bleeding Disorders Conference (WBDC) for individuals and families living with a bleeding disorder. The weekend provides an opportunity to attend educational sessions presented by experts, meet with health care and industry professionals, and form important connections with peers affected in Wisconsin.
The weekend begins on Friday evening at a welcome reception from 5-7 p.m. and continues Saturday with a full day of educational programming and wrap ups Sunday morning after breakfast symposiums. Special programming will be provided for youth ages 7-15, and child care will be available for kids ages four to six.
Please carefully account for each child in youth programming on your registration. We carefully plan programming and supervision based on a ration of registered children in advance. We can not accommodate any day-of registrations for youth programming (ages 4-15).
Children ages three and under are welcome to attend programming along with a caretaker, or GLHF will assist with accommodations to bring along an additional caretaker. This is only for families with children three and under. Please contact Kailee 414.937.6784 or firstname.lastname@example.org for special permissions.
The conference will take place at the Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells.
Conference registration is now open until April 24. A registration fee of $150 includes one hotel room (additional charge for guests beyond four, $25 per person) on Friday and Saturday nights, four waterpark passes, conference programming, child care (four to six), and meals (Saturday breakfast, lunch and dinner; Sunday breakfast).
This special conference registration rate is for individuals and families living with a bleeding disorder and their household only. You must receive care at a Wisconsin HTC or reside in Wisconsin to attend. If you need assistance with the fee, please read the special instructions below. GLHF does not want the cost of registration to be a barrier to attendance.
The actual cost of the weekend is $1,500 per family of four, making this special rate of $150 contingent on attendance at conference programming. Adults and youth who do not register, or attend programming do not qualify for Saturday or Sunday meals and will be taken into account for future attendance at the conference. If you need assistance with the fee please contact GLHF before registering online. A minimum payment of $20 is required to hold your reservation and sustain the future of this special program.
One hotel room per family.
Exceptions will be made if…
If you qualify for a second room, please contact GLHF at 414.937.6784 to validate and receive a special code to register with.
We understand that families have different abilities to contribute to GLHF education and programs. Our goal is to ensure that Wisconsin families impacted by a bleeding disorder, or receiving care from a Wisconsin Hemophilia Treatment Center, who would like to participate in this educational conference have the opportunity to do so.
Because of this, we do offer financial assistance with the registration fee. Please contact GLHF BEFORE registering online at 414.937.6784 for a code to apply at check out if you qualify.
