Event description

Description

To recognize March as Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month, we will be holding an important one-day Consumer Medical Update in Southbridge, MA on Saturday, March 24, 2018.

The goals of this meeting are to provide consumers in the New England bleeding disorders community with the foundation and tools to discuss the potential treatments currently in clinical trials (subcutaneous injections and gene therapy), to have conversations around future insurance barriers to these treatments, and what the psychosocial implications may be to patients.

Childcare will not be provided at this event and the content will be tailored for teenagers (ages 13+) and adults. If your teenager/child is under the age of 13 and would like to attend this event, please contact us at: info@newenglandhemophilia.org

Please note that registration will close on Friday, March 9.
