Personal assistance may be available for those members of the Alaska bleeding disorder community that are experiencing a temporary financial hardship through the Alaska Hemophilia Association. Assistance may be granted for access to care, insurance premium assistance, food, clothing, utilities, or any other vital services. All requests will be reviewed and evaluated based on need. Applicants must be able to demonstrate that they have exhausted over avenues for assistance and be willing to work with our Social Worker to explore all options. Please contact either the HTC Representative Kyme Groller at firstname.lastname@example.org or the Chapter Representative John Palmatier at email@example.com. The personal Assistance form is available to download on the Forms section of this website.
Educational sessions are offered throughout the year in partnership with the Alaska Hemophilia Association and the Alaska Bleeding Disorder Clinics. Topics may include a general overview of a bleeding disorder, specific training, in-depth roundtables, or any topic of interest to the Alaska bleeding disorder community. Some presentations are sponsored by our industry partners and may include national experts as keynote speakers. Look to the Alaska Hemophilia Association Facebook page, the Alaska Bleeding Disorder Clinics Facebook page, or mailout flyers for additional information.
The Alaska Hemophilia Association accepts requests for educational scholarships year-round. Alaskan patients with a diagnosed bleeding may apply for each semester enrolled. Applicants should be enrolled full-time in an accredited university or college, be able to provide proof of acceptance and registration of full-time courses, and, if previously applied for a scholarship, evidence of successful completion of the previous semester.
