Youth at the Conference

This story was originally published in National Haemophilia, No 224 December 2023.

The Melbourne Conference in August 2023 was the first time the national Conference had been held in person since the COVID-19 epidemic began. It was a great opportunity for young people with bleeding disorders to catch up with each other and hear the very latest information from the experts.

Adam, Alan and Cassie talked to HFA about their experiences.
