With funding by a grant from Pfizer and Sanofi the AHA is able to organize a specialized annual virtual conference that focuses on the work of bleeding disorder summer camps. Designed by a planning team from across the country, NACCHO (North American Camping Conference for Hemophilia Organizations) is facilitated by nationally known presenters and leaders from the bleeding disorder community who share useful camp resources and techniques. Participants can exchange resource materials, meet with representatives from NHF, pick up new ideas, and share their most successful endeavors with people from other camps.
