Disparities in Bleeding Disorders
Where We Have Been, Where We Are & Where We Are Going
In this session, we will examine the history of health disparities and inequities within bleeding disorders from diagnosis to disease management. We will learn about current demographic data, with a focus on diversity, equity, inclusion and anti-racism. We will also provide an overview of how HFA’s Bleeding Disorders Health Disparities Council intends to educate and empower our community to attain health equity and improve health outcomes for all persons living with a bleeding disorder.
