Annual Winter Statewide Meeting and Holiday Gathering

HSC’s Annual Winter Meeting in the Mid-State brings together our bleeding disorders community for one final event to finish out the year. It also allows for our Holiday Celebration. We report on the progress and mission successes we have had during the year; highlighting events, individuals, advocacy initiatives, and the Chapter’s programs and services. Educational keynote and motivational presentations are included. The Winter Meeting will celebrate the holiday season with festive activities for all ages and includes a visit with Santa Claus.

Due to COVID – 19, this year our Winter Statewide Meeting will be provided virtually throughout the Month of December to support all ages and support groups. We invite you to join us for these fun, supportive, and educational events. Our members safety is our number one goal and we hope to be together again soon. Happy Holidays to all!
