Throughout the year, NEHA hosts webinars for our community members. Webinars are live events with audio, video and chat capabilities via the internet. This allows members of the New England bleeding disorders community to get involved with our chapter and ask questions without needing to travel to one of our events.
Webinar: IEP & 504 Discussion
As students begin a new school year, it is vital for parents and caregivers to have conversations with their teachers, guidance counselors, and school nurses about their child’s chronic condition(s). The New England Hemophilia Association teamed up with the Hemophilia Alliance of Maine for this interactive webinar to provide information about 504’s, IEP’s and IHP’s.
Webinar: Pros & Cons of Hemlibra Therapy
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved Hemlibra (Emicizumab), a new subcutaneous treatment for hemophilia A with or without inhibitors. To help the bleeding disorders community better understand this therapy, the Boston Hemophilia Center and the New England Hemophilia Association (NEHA) hosted an educational webinar about the pros and cons of Hemlibra (Emicizumab).
