Advocacy from your couch, coming soon in January!
Advocating for your community shouldn't just happen one day; it should be happening year-round. HOI is excited to begin giving members of the community tools to help reach out to local and state legislator about changes in the health care field. By knowing what and who to reach out to, your voice will be heard. You will be the change for the community.
First social is March 10th--mark your calendars!
Our goal is to establish a community of young adults and teens who are interested in developing leadership skills, become more independent and empowered, develop a support system of peers, and of course, to have fun! While this program is being put together by HOI and the HTC staff, we really want this program to be YOUR program. Participants will play an important role in choosing what adventures we will have while being supported by these organizations.
The goals of our first event will be to develop the constructs of this. I am really excited to see where this program is taken. As a teen and young adult you will be the ones making important decisions about this group, it is a great opportunity to be a part of developing a unique and important group. The group is for YOU, so YOU should be in charge. You are the future of the bleeding disorder community.
Our first event we will be held at the YMCA Camp in Boone, IA. This facility offers so many great opportunities, including a zip line (if weather allows)! We will be spending most of our time together in the lodge and around the grounds; sleeping arrangements will be in cozy lodges with temperature controls!
