The Bleeding Disorders Association of Northeastern New York, Inc., formerly known as the Upper Hudson Valley Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation, Inc., is an organization dedicated to assisting people with various congenital bleeding disorders. One of the organization's main functions is legislative advocacy - ensuring that the rights of the bleeding disorders community are preserved at the local and national level.
The Association was, from the beginning, a strong supporter of the Ricky Ray Hemophilia Relief Fund Act of 1998.
It was also instrumental in mobilizing the hemophilia community statewide resulting in passage of the "Access to Justice" legislation in New York State. Members of the organization advocated with individuals at the New York State Department of Health to develop and adopt an EMS Advisory for the Field Care of Individuals With Hemophilia. The organization will not hesitate to travel to the State Capitol (in Albany) or to Washington, D.C. to speak on behalf of the community.
BDANENY will continue to advocate for the community regarding legislative, social, educational, and work-related issues as well as adequate insurance coverage. We encourage you to contact the Association so that we may assist in improving the quality of life for all New Yorkers with bleeding disorders.
