Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
To provide education and support for people with bleeding disorders and their family and friends.
The first recorded gathering of Iowan's affected by bleeding disorders occurred in 1986. This
gathering was organized by Dr. Thomas Kisker, University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics. Dr. Kisker
united a group of parents with children that had bleeding disorders to determine how they could
best support each other and their children navigate through the medical system and better
understand challenges that accompany this diagnosis. This group later became known as
Hemophilia of Iowa, Inc. (HOI). The organization quickly expanded to cover the entire state of Iowa.
HOI's vision is to bring awareness, education, and advocacy to the bleeding disorder community.
The first organized program held was the Hemophilia Summer Camp in 1987. Annually HOI provides
programs and services that benefit the Iowa bleeding disorder community.
