About American Hemochromatosis Society
The American Hemochromatosis Society (AHS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public, medical community and media by distributing the most current information available on hereditary hemochromatosis (HH). This is a metabolic disorder characterized by excessive absorption of iron, which eventually damages numerous organs. The objectives of AHS include promoting population and newborn screening with genetic testing for HH, banning genetic discrimination and providing compassionate support of all patients with hereditary hemochromatosis. The AHS also has an information center – Neonatal Hemochromatosis Information Center (NHIC) at: www.neonatalhemochromatosis.org.
