Message from Milena Pirnat, Chapter President
I hope you are enjoying outdoor activities this summer, as the COVID-19 crisis has been long and stressful for most of us. Nevertheless, our activities here at CHS-MC have been consistent this summer. We have been collaborating with members of the Manitoba Bleeding Disorders Program (MBDP) to ensure that patients get adequate support and education during these challenging times. Also, we are hoping to organize educational sessions with the MBDP in the fall. If you have any questions or have some ideas for these sessions, please feel free to connect with us and stay tuned!
Our Board is working on a five years Communication plan and is also involved in strategic planning process intended for CHS. As you know, your favorite program, summer camp was cancelled this year and we worked with CHS team to help them organize CHS first virtual camp that was successful. Thanks to Chris for designing amazing Escape Room for fun and educational purposes. At this time we also have some resource Kits lined up for you. Please, check it out and call Chris for more information.
Our International activities (Serbian Twinning and advocacy efforts for Bosnian Hemophilia Association to get access to Hemlibra), continue at this time. We will update you on these efforts in our next newsletter. I can assure you that we have amazing team of volunteers, great executive director and we are working as a good team to ensure the best support for you in these critical times. Always feel free to connect with us, ask us questions and voice your concerns.
I wish you a stress free and a bleed free rest of the summer!
