NATF works with the Georgia Thrombosis Forum to promote the education of young students, teaching them about thrombosis and how they can spread awareness in their communities. Each summer, NATF hosts a high school intern from the group. Each intern has the opportunity to work alongside doctors and patients to enhance their knowledge of thombosis and raising awareness.
In addition to accepting interns, NATF is proud to share interviews that the students conduct with professionals and patients on topics surrounding thrombosis. The following are a series of interviews and articles from our eThrombosis online journal:
