Event description

Description

Science and health writers in the Washington, D.C. area are invited to sit down with Gary Raskob, PhD, dean of the College of Public Health at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center and one of the nation’s leading experts on thrombosis. Dr. Raskob focuses on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE); the clinical development of anti-thrombic drugs; clinical trials, prevention research; evidence-based medicine; and the translation of research evidence into practice and health policy.

In the briefing, Dr. Raskob will discuss the fact that thrombosis is often the underlying cause of heart attack, thromboembolic stroke and venous thromboembolism (VTE) – the top three cardiovascular killers – and yet most people don’t know much about the condition or how to prevent it. Dr. Raskob can speak to what people need to know about the condition, the risk factors, and how to spot the signs and symptoms before it is too late, as well as what hospitals and health systems can do to reduce preventable deaths from thrombosis.
