For years, the hemophilia community has waited for life-changing advancements and the promise of revolutionary science. The time has come to make these goals a reality.
My Life, Our Future is a nationwide campaign for progress in hemophilia. Leaders in our community have come together to offer a free genotyping test, so that you may gain a deeper understanding of your hemophilia today, while helping to advance the breakthrough treatments of tomorrow.
"Through this program, ATHN and its affiliated treatment centers will be able to offer its patients a free genotyping test, which is a great benefit to the providers and to the patients."
