Sense of community on display at the WFH 2018 World Congress Opening Ceremony

Camaraderie and friendship filled the air during yesterday’s opening ceremonies at the Scottish Event Campus Armadillo. The music of the World Choir set the mood and the words of Jack Bridge—a British paralympic swimmer with hemophilia A—inspired the audience. Hundreds of people took part in the event, and the sense of excitement on the first day of Congress was palpable.

Thought-provoking speeches by Alain Weill, WFH President, Alain Baumann, WFH Chief Executive Officer, and Jan-Willem André de la Porte, WFH Patron demonstrated how much the global bleeding disorders community has accomplished since the last WFH World Congress. It was an upbeat finish to a productive first day, and a wonderful example of what is to come at the WFH 2018 World Congress.
