Forty-Five Families will Join us for the Wisconsin Bleeding Disorders Conference June 2-4 in Wisconsin Dells

The Wisconsin Bleeding Disorders Conference is June 2-4 in Wisconsin Dells. Join us at the Kalahari Resort for a Weekend of Family Fun and Education! This year’s conference includes a traveling science fair in partnership with Believe Ltd.; unique workshops including Hike and Heal Wellness from Madison, an organization that inspires personal growth through nature connection and mindful play; and so much more! Registration is full, but if you would like to get on a waiting list, contact Kailee at

Each year, GLHF hosts the Wisconsin Bleeding Disorders Conference for people 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 in Wisconsin.

The weekend begins on Friday evening with a welcome reception from 5-7 pm and continues Saturday with a full day of educational programming. The weekend wraps up with a final symposium after Sunday morning breakfast. Special programming will be provided for children ages 7-15, and childcare will be available for children ages 4-6.

This year, we are partnering with Believe Ltd. to bring a traveling science fair to our conference. The fair presents teens, adults and families the opportunity to learn about the science behind bleeding disorders by combining the interactivity of a true “science center” exhibit with the visual style of the classic science fairs we all grew up with! The science fair will be in the exhibit hall throughout the weekend. Children can walk through the science fair experience as a part of our Saturday programming.

Also this year, Hike and Heal Wellness, an organization from Madison, WI that inspires personal growth through nature connection and mindful play, will facilitate several workshops for both children and adults. These workshops rely on play as a tool for learning. The goal of each workshop is to use experiential rhetoric and mindfulness to better understand the scientific reasons for personal reactions, habits and tendencies.

We are proud to offer weekend programs for attendees 16+ on Saturday afternoon including the following topics:

• Celebrating Your Inner Child
• Gene Therapy
• Perplexing Periods
• The Ever Changing Insurance Landscape
• Nutrition Myth Busters
• Who is Taking Care of the Caregiver?
• Advocacy Scenarios
• Independence Management
• Aging with a Bleeding Disorder
• Career and Continuing Education
