Please note all event times are Eastern Standard Time (EST)

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.

This month, we will be joined by Dr. Umberto Campia!

Dr. Umberto Campia is an associate physician in Cardiology and Vascular Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and assistant professor in medicine at Harvard Medical School (HMS), in Boston, MA. He is one of the limited numbers of academic cardiologists in the United States who are also trained in vascular medicine. He is board certified in Internal Medicine, Adult Cardiology, and Vascular Medicine.

Prior to his appointment at BWH and HMS, Dr. Campia established and directed the Section of Vascular Medicine at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, and was assistant professor of medicine at Georgetown University, both in Washington, DC. 

Since joining BWH, the largest proportion of his time has been dedicated to patient care, both in the inpatient and outpatient settings. His clinical expertise includes General Cardiology and Vascular Medicine, with a special focus on aortic diseases and cardiovascular oncology. Dr. Campia is the medical director of the multidisciplinary aortic disease program in collaboration with Cardiac and Vascular Surgery. In addition to the prompt evaluation and management of patients presenting with acute aortic syndromes, the program focuses on the early detection and management of aortic diseases. In parallel with his interest in aortic disease, Dr. Campia has created a unique Vascular Oncology clinic within the Cardio-Oncology section, which focuses on the management of the vascular complications of cancer and cancer treatments. Additionally, he is the only cardiologist staffing the E-Consult service, which answers a broad spectrum of clinical questions using the electronic medical records.
