Youth News - Youth getting involved

Have you been to an Australia/New Zealand Conference before?

Here are some experiences from other young people across Australia.

It’s not too late to register!

Dustin:

Attending conferences is a great way to meet others in a similar situation to yourself and make new friends. It's an excellent opportunity to learn from those who have been through it all before, and to help others by sharing your experiences. Plus it’s always exciting to hear about what the future promises for bleeding disorder treatment and care. I would highly recommend attending an Australia/NZ Conference!

 

Emily:

I went to the World Hemophilia Congress last year and it was amazing. I really enjoyed meeting other people with similar issues as me and it made me feel less alone in dealing with things. It is definitely worth while going to the Conference if you can because there is always more to learn.

What is it like to be a moderator for Factored In and why you should think about becoming one!

Emily:

Being a moderator for Factored In is great fun. Filming for Factored In was a fun experience and hopefully our work encourages people to use the website, so we have things to moderate!

 

Dustin:

Being a moderator on Factored in has made me feel more connected to the bleeding disorders community in Australia. I think it has real potential to connect a lot of people and build a vibrant, national youth community. It would be great to see it really take off!
