In brief: Find the center

Find the nearest hemophilia treatment center in your college community.
Ask your current hematologist to help you find one. Call the center before you move to college. Have your medical record transferred to your new hemophilia center. Make an appointment to see the care providers at the new center before your bleeding occurs. Have them prescribe your factors.

In brief: Self-guidance

By college time, the boy with hemophilia usually knows more about his illness than do most physicians.
A good relationship -- distance or local -- with a hematologist is the mainstay, even while junior achieves greater independence and autonomy. I've seen these people do remarkably well. Good luck.
