We were pleased to meet up with a strong group of community members at the Information Evening held on World Haemophilia Day, 17 April 2018, held at the Womens’ and Children’s Hospital in Adelaide.
The evening was planned by the South Australia Haemophilia Treatment Network and Haemophilia Foundation Australia (HFA). An update on the advances in haemophilia treatment and care were presented by Dr Simon McRae, Director of the adult Haemophilia Treatment Centre at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, Mrs Auburn McIntyre, Physiotherapist, and Dr Heather Tapp, Director of the Haemophilia Treatment Centre at the Women’s’ & Children’s Hospital.
A small group followed on from this to an evening of Ten Pin Bowling where experiences and personal stories of living with a bleeding disorder were shared along with bowling skills!
We look forward to publishing reports about the family day at the Adelaide Zoo held on 3 June 2018 in the next edition of National Haemophilia.
