At the Center for Bleeding and Clotting Disorders of St. Joseph’s Hospital, we recognize the importance of helping our patients to build a strong support network and stay connected to the community.
Each year, we attend the Hemophilia Foundation of Greater Florida’s walk in an effort to advocate for our patients. The 2019 walk successfully raised more than $40,000 and 91% of that revenue will go directly back towards supporting the bleeding disorders community. In 2018, our team won an award for Best Costume and in 2019 we proudly earned the Champions in Action Corporate Award.

In 2019, our pharmacist Lena Charafi worked closely with the office of Mayor Bob Buckhorn who signed a new Proclamation recognizing April 17, 2019 as a World Hemophilia Day in the city of Tampa. This amazing achievement will help bring awareness to the Tampa Bay community about hemophilia and other bleeding disorders. You can read more about this and many other highlights in our newsletters.
