We are excited to provide this weekend symposium to our membership adults, ages 21 and over, who are living with bleeding disorders themselves, are carriers of a genetic bleeding disorder,  or are caretakers for someone in their immediate family who is affected. Our Women’s Retreat last year was very successful and the attendees expressed a return to Greenville and do it all over again. Better then that, we wanted to bring all adults into the event so couples can take a weekend away from the kids, single men and women can enjoy time with community members for fellowship and support, and everyone can enjoy being connected while learning in an atmosphere of beauty and opportunity, such a downtown Greenville. The venue is inviting with so much to explore in the new Camperdown area and within walking distance to Falls Park and Liberty Bridge. We will be providing group activities throughout the Symposium, while providing the time for women and men to have separate sessions related to their unique needs. Start planning now and enjoy time aware from the busy lives we all live today. Come relax while joining the South Carolina Bleeding Disorders Community in support during the National Bleeding Disorders Month of March, while leading up to the World Hemophilia Day of April 17th. Registration space will be limited so we suggest registering as soon as you know you can attend. Travel grants for gas support will be available for those living in the low county who apply.

We are grateful and humbled from the support of our BDASC member, John H Tiller, who bequeathed the organization with funding upon his passing. In honor of John, the men’s programming and a portion of this event is being supported and dedicated in John’s honor. He was an avid golfer, which is being incorporated into this event. 

We are also grateful to the following organizations and companies for their support of this educational and supportive program!
