Patient Advocates and Stakeholders Meet In Greenville To Discuss 2020 Outlook
By Jeremy Williams
On Friday, November 8, more than 30 advocates, healthcare professionals, policy experts, government officials, and industry representatives met in Greenville to continue ongoing discussions begun at HSC’s “South Carolina Bleeding Disorders Challenge” forum in 2018, regarding access to healthcare for persons with bleeding disorders living in the state. The day kicked off with heartfelt and moving personal stories from four HSC advocacy members: Cristal Day (Advocacy Coalition chair), Jameelah Malcolm, Eric Dunton, and Meggan Burton (Advocacy Ambassadors). Each of them offered compelling life lessons involving their (and their family members’) persistence in confronting the challenges of living with a bleeding disorder.
