New Families Retreat

September 20 @ 5:00 pm - September 22 @ 1:00 pm

NEHA is thrilled to open registration our inaugural New Families Retreat taking place at the John Carver Inn in Plymouth, MA from Friday, September 20 to Sunday, September 22, 2019. This is a new event in 2019, and we are very excited to offer this type of retreat to new families in our community.


The event is open to families with children ages 12 and under and who have been diagnosed with a bleeding disorder. The objective of the program is to:

  • serve as touchpoint for families who have young children who were recently diagnosed
  • connect families to NEHA
  • share resources
  • provide tailored, smaller events specifically to meet the needs of newly diagnosed families


In order to make this event possible, we are collaborating with EEMinds (formerly known as PEP, Parents Empowering Parents). EEMinds has created the content and been hosting this workshop for over 22 years. They are experts in the field! They specialize in helping families manage special and complicated challenges associated with having children that have serious medical conditions. Their mission is to help grow and nurture productive and independent adults by providing skills-based educational programming, community, and resources to parents in need.


Unlike other NEHA events, this event is intended only for parent(s). To help make it easier for parents with children to attend, childcare will offered at no charge. Additionally, NEHA can provide up to $100 to help offset costs for those who travel over 100 miles round trip to attend this event.
