National Hemochromatosis Awareness Month
May 1 - May 31
Celebrate Hemochromatosis Awareness Month in your community! Resources are available on this page.
If it is time for a phlebotomy, please consider donating blood in honour of Hemochromatosis Awareness Month!
In Quebec, you can donate your blood at Héma-Québec blood donor clinic every 56 days.
We have partnered with Canadian Blood Services in BC to promote Hemochromatosis Awareness Month. Visit our calendar to see if there will be a mobile blood donor centre near you! We are also looking for hemochromatosis ambassadors to promote awareness of iron overload with blood donors resting in the refreshments area. Please take part by signing up to volunteer and help save lives!
