The Board of Directors for the Central Ohio Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation is the governing body for the Chapter. The Board represents a cross-section of our community and has a passion for the organization and those we serve. The members work hard to ensure long-term sustainability of the Chapter and oversee that the funds raised directly affect those in need. The Board, along with its advisors, meets monthly to discuss governing and programmatic issues for the organization.
