American Hemochromatosis Society-Prevention Through Genetic Testing

The American Hemochromatosis Society welcomes inquiries from the media, whether television, radio, or newspapers/magazines.  AHS believes that the media is key to “getting the word out” about hereditary hemochromatosis (HH).  There is always increased awareness after a story is done on hemochromatosis.  Well known TV shows, such as “House” have featured hemochromatosis in their story line. 

If you are with the media and considering a story on hereditary hemochromatosis (iron overload disease), we have the resources to help you write or produce a great story, a story, which no doubt, will save lives.  We have hemochromatosis patients who are willing to speak to the media, as well as have their photos used for the story.  We also have leading medical experts who are willing to speak with the media as well.
