About Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month
In 2016, the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) officially declared March as Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month! Each year, our goal is to have the governors and legislatures of each New England state issue resolutions and proclamations declaring March as Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month. This special designation helps create awareness about bleeding disorders to the general public and with our elected officials.
