VWD Pre-Con
1:00 PM – 2:35 PM
Track: VWD
The von Willebrand disease (VWD) pre-conference brings together the VWD community to connect in a lively, engaging and supportive educational environment. This year, we will focus on the elements of reconnecting, rebuilding and refocusing as a community. We will explore the many ways that we as a community can help raise awareness of VWD and help those who are unaware of their status. We’ll also discuss new medical updates and NHF’s course of action with VWD.
