nd advocate for themselves and their families."

"Based on input from people living with bleeding disorders and their loved ones, we've been able to design programs that meet specific needs within this community," said Jess Swann , Director of Marketing & Community Relations at Biogen Idec. "For Biogen Idec, these workshops are aligned with our mission to empower the approximately 20,000 people with hemophilia throughout the United States to live the lives they choose. This is an area we're deeply committed to."

According to Stern, three pilot training workshops have been delivered so far, with more than 120 participants. "Early feedback demonstrates that these workshops have a positive impact. By an overwhelming margin, participants found the content to be relevant (93%), the facilitation effective (94%). Overall, satisfaction was very high (96%), and participants felt that the skills introduced helped them think and behave differently in addressing life, family and work issues."

Workshops will be conducted throughout 2013 at various locations across the country. In addition to the life skills workshops, Biogen Idec has a number of programs for people living with inherited bleeding disorders.
