Our 4th Annual Bleeding Disorders Awareness Day at the Capitol actually begins with a 5:00 PM dinner and training the night before on Sunday February 18th at the Grand Hotel in Salem.  Here participants will learn about current legislative issues and build confidence in their ability to tell their own stories to their legislators the following day.  While this dinner and training are optional, we highly encourage everyone to attend. If you come for the dinner and training, and live more than 30 minutes away, HFO will pay for an overnight stay in the Grand Hotel on Sunday evening so you wake up fresh and ready to go straight to the Capitol the next day.  Registration for the dinner and training, and overnight at the Grand Hotel is required by January 19th.   Registration for the day at the capitol including appointments with your elected officials is required by February 2nd.   Registration for the day at the capitol without appointments with your elected officials, but including lunch, is required by February 15th.  If you do not register by these dates, but still wish to come to the capitol, please do! We just will not be able to assure appointments or lunch if you don't meet the deadlines.  We still would love to see you.
