MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - A national group dedicated to helping people with bleeding disorders has opened an office in Morgantown.

The National Hemophilia Foundation says the addition brings to 52 the number of community-based chapters across the country.

The foundation says there are about 300 people in West Virginia who have bleeding disorders. State chapter executive director Amber Tichnell says the goal is to educate, support and help provide easy access to services for patients.

The state chapter has a partnership with hemophilia treatment centers at Charleston Area Medical Center and at West Virginia University’s Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center in Morgantown.

The state chapter plans open houses on Oct. 19 in Charleston and Oct. 26 in Morgantown.
