Our virtual Blood Clot Education Group is a space to discuss all things related to thrombosis, or blood clotting. 

Join us to…

  • Find accurate and trustworthy information about blood clots
  • Learn about current research and treatments from experts
  • Share your questions and experiences with others

Each group will begin with short participant introductions (your name, where you’re from, and one sentence about why you’re joining the group and/or your experience with blood clots.) A clinician will then answer general questions. You may submit questions in advance when you register. 

Please note that our featured experts cannot provide personalized medical advice.
