CHS-MC is proud to offer many different programs to the membership. Some of the programs are open to all of our members while others are open only to those with inherited bleeding disorders. The Chapter has long standing programs such as Family Camp, that have run for over 30 years. We also have episodic programs like the PPE Kit program started in 2020 and the Every Step Counts program in the summer of 2021. The Chapter strives to meet the needs of the community.
