Did you know that women have a higher risk for blood clots over their lifetime than men? NATF understands that women face unique concerns when dealing with blood clots, including heavy periods, contraception, and even bleeding after sex.

This quarter’s group, we take on heavy periods, contraception, and blood thinners!

Join NATF, The Foundation for Women and Girls with Blood Disorders, and WomenHeart for a very special first support group as part of Blood Clot Awareness Month. This group will provide a safe space to connect with others, receive support, and have questions answered. 

Please note that our experts cannot provide personalized medical advice. 

This quarter, we will be joined by Dr. Arielle Langer!

Arielle Langer obtained her MD and MPH degrees concurrently from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and Mailman School of Public Health. She did internal medicine residency and a Chief Resident year at New York Presbyterian/ Columbia University Medical Center.

Dr. Langer is currently an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School.
