Advocating for Life Without Limits

Great Lakes Hemophilia Foundation (GLHF) provides public policy advocacy on behalf of, and in partnership with, the bleeding disorders community. We educate government officials about the impact that existing laws and pending legislation may have on someone living with a bleeding disorder.

Wisconsin Legislative Day

Join us each Spring in Madison as we educate our legislators about bleeding disorders and access to care, fair insurance practices, and voice our support for issues important to our community. You will be armed with information and most importantly, your experiences, when meeting.

There is nobody that can share your story better than you!

Legislative Bills To Watch

Washington Days

National Hemophilia Foundation’s (NHF) Washington Days is an annual opportunity for people affected by bleeding disorders to advocate at the national level and learn effective grassroots advocacy techniques. Join others from bleeding disorder communities across the country as we meet with legislators and staff on Capitol Hill to share stories, ask questions and voice concerns. This helps lawmakers who shape national healthcare policy better understand life with a bleeding disorder.

Washington Days Travel Grants

GLHF offers travel grants each year to cover the cost of registration, hotel accommodations and airfare for up to two advocates from the Wisconsin bleeding disorders community. If you are interested in heading to Washington, D.C. with GLHF to impact the legislative process, contact Karin Koppen at for more information.
