Hemophilia, a Patient Perspective Series
Time & Location
About The Event
RareDIG is proud to present its first event of the year! Come and join us Tuesday, October 2nd to learn more about Hemophilia with patients living with this condition.
The Patient’s Perspective Series offers a unique opportunity to learn about a disease through patients’ eyes. Through their narrative, and by learning about their experiences, challenges and successes throughout their illness, rareDIG’s PPS aims to provide future physician with increased awareness of rare disorders.
We are very thrilled to have the National Health policy director of the Canadian Hemophilia Society (CHS), Mr. David Page, who is a hemophiliac himself advocating for better conditions and treatments for people affected by this disease for more than 30 years. Ms. Claude Meilleur, head nurse of the hematology-oncology clinic of Ste-Justine hospital for coagulation disorders patients, will come to share with us her professional experience.
We are also excited to have with us three patients living with hemophilia : Cyril Boulila, Kelan Wu and Anaïs Paré, three young professionals studying at McGill University and active participants of the CHS will be joining our diverse panel to share with us their reality as hemophilia patients.
Snacks will be provided - See you there!
