Submit Your Application for HeroPath™ Today!

Navigating adulthood is challenging enoughfrom asserting your independence, to building relationships, to choosing a direction in life. Living with hemophilia can make this life stage even more complex, which is where HeroPath™ comes in. Apply to HeroPath™ today for the chance to work with talented life coaches and your peers to learn new skills and techniques to help you excel in your daily life and chart a clear path forward.

What: For the second year in a row, Novo Nordisk has partnered with Jeffrey Leiken, CEO at Evolution Mentoring International, to offer HeroPath™, an empowering program that offers life coach and peer support to help teens ages 16-19 and adults ages 20-25.

Who: Given the hemophilia community’s positive feedback from HeroPath™ 2014, Novo Nordisk has expanded the program so that all people with hemophilia A or B (with or without inhibitors) ages 16-25 who live in the United States and are privately insured may apply.

How: Visit the HeroPath™ website  to complete your official HeroPath™ application, which requires answering several multiple-choice questions and providing a short written explanation (up to 150 words) of why you are a great fit for the program. Not one for writing? You can provide a 60-second video explanation instead—just upload your video to YouTube™ and paste the URL into the application form. Check out the website for sample responses to help get your creative juices flowing.

When: All entries must be received by 11:59 p.m. EDT on Monday, June 15, 2015. Jeff will select up to 50 participants based on their answers to the multiple-choice questions and the level of creativity and original thought conveyed through their short-response or video entries. Entries will be judged on a rolling basis. Applicants will be notified of their selection as early as Tuesday, June 16, 2015.

Why: Up to 50 selected participants will attend one of two unforgettable kickoff weekends with Jeff, his team of expert coaches, and fellow peers.

Kickoff one: July 31-August 2, 2015

Ages: 20-25

Kickoff two: August 7-9, 2015
Up to 25 participants

What parents need to know: HeroPath™ isn’t just a weekend retreat—it’s a yearlong program designed to help offer participants the tools to identify:
·        Their professional career paths based on interests, strengths, talents, and natural inclination.

·        The types of people to associate with personally and professionally
·        The kind of person they want to be (Jeff and his team will help participants give voice to their own values)


For some participants, it may be their first time away from home. HeroPath™ will allow them to meet peers with similar experiences and challenges. The program is structured to provide participants with resources to help them better manage their state, stay focused, and make better decisions under pressure.

Selected participants (and guardian if the participant is younger than 18) will receive travel details 2 to 4 weeks before the kickoff weekend once all their required paperwork is complete. A planning team also will be available via phone and e-mail in the weeks leading up to the kickoff to address outstanding questions. Details will be included in the official program welcome letter.
