BDASC A Blooddrop Clear.png

Introduction: This year, 2021, has been a landmark year for the Bleeding Disorders Association of South Carolina. We have updated our name to better reflect the diversity of disease states that make up the Bleeding Disorders community, locally in South Carolina, and within our national organizations. We have changed our logo to encompass our “all-inclusive mission” in serving all bleeding disorders without any bias of race, gender, ethnicity, social and economic class, or ordination. With our “newly” learned virtual technology capabilities, we strive to reach every one of our members in all corners of the state. We have strengthened our advocacy voices in Columbia to ensure our access to health care and quality treatment while participating in research initiatives to have a hand in the blue print of the direction of research and to strengthen the need to find a cure. Now we take up one of our most important tasks for you to let us know what "YOU" think. Your feedback helps us to focus our future services, programs, major events, educational needs, research projects and our advocacy efforts. Your feedback helps us move forward for our tomorrows!

       As always, this survey is completely anonymous, but this year we are asking some additional questions to help us better refine your feedback. Again, the survey is completely anonymous and we are only asking these questions for classification purposes.

If you live in South Carolina, what county do you live in?
