We have created a Client Resources page to provide some materials we typically use in educating clients and their communities on inherited bleeding disorders.
In addition, we also offer the Hemophilia of Georgia Library, which includes books, videos and DVDs covering all aspects of hemophilia and inherited bleeding disorders as well as topics like child development and coping with chronic illness.
Hemophilia of Georgia clients can access these library materials by visiting the library in person or by contacting the HoG Health Educator or their Outreach Nurse. People outside Georgia can order educational publications through HANDI, the information clearinghouse of the National Hemophilia Foundation, by calling 1-800-424-2634.
