2023 Education Weekend & RMHBDA Annual Meeting

February is time for the Annual Education Weekend for people affected by bleeding disorders in Montana and Wyoming!

You and your family are invited for a weekend of informative sessions, youth programming for all ages, and an opportunity to connect with others dealing with similar challenges.

This education weekend and annual meeting of RMHBDA is designed to bring you education, up-to-date information about life with a bleeding disorder, and connect you with other families in our two-state area.

Check-in for the event will be Friday from 4–6 pm followed by a dinner.

For our youth, we will have a variety of programming available. Please pack your lifejackets for pool time in the afternoon!

Don’t miss your chapter’s annual meeting for all members on Saturday — important decisions will be made at this meeting and your input is needed! Lodging and meals will be provided to attending members, so don’t hesitate to send your registration off today! Don't miss this opportunity with your Chapter, Industries, HTC Staff, Accredited Speakers, and your family. It will be a special and rewarding weekend for all.

Need assistance to attend Education Weekend?

RMHBDA will provide Patient Assistance applications in all registration packets. Please save all gas, food, and travel expense receipts! If you have any questions, please direct them to Brad Benne, Executive Director at 406.586.4050.
