2019 Medical Symposium
March 9 @ 9:00 am - March 10 @ 11:30 am
With this event we hope to provide consumers with the knowledge needed to discuss new and current treatment options, to discuss the ins and outs of clinical trials, and to have conversations around insurance barriers to treatment. To recognize March as Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month and to help the Virginia bleeding disorders community understand what these potential advancements may mean, we are excited to host our Inaugural Medical Symposium in Richmond, VA.
