Wellness for Women - W2

Wellness for Women or W2 is a weekend bi-annual program for women ages 16 and up affected by an inherited bleeding disorder.  The weekend is comprised of informative workshops that are provided by dynamic experts from across the province in areas such as women's health and well-being.

The conference was created for women, by women, and was designed for women to engage with other women from within the inherited bleeding disorders community.  This is the ONLY women's conference on inherited bleeding disorders in Ontario. 

Our next edition of this program is scheduled to take place in 2015.

Community Camp

Hemophilia Ontario's Community Camp is a weekend program that occurs every other year at YMCA Camp Wanakita and is designed for ALL members of the inherited bleeding disorders community.  This program provides education sessions for adults, couples, and children while participating in fun outdoor activities.

Past speakers have included members from several of the hemophilia treatment centres across Ontario, as well as local speakers from within the Haliburton area.  Participants are able to cater their educational needs as this program offers concurrent sessions throughout the weekend.

Our next installment of this well loved program is scheduled to take place in October 2016.
