The North American Thrombosis Forum and Dr. James Welker, at Anne Arundel Health System in Annapolis, Maryland, have been hosting an Online VTE (venous thromboembolism) Support Group for a little over a year now.
VTE is a term that describes a condition that occurs when clots or thrombi develop in the vein. VTE includes deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE).
The online VTE Support Group offers patients the opportunity to share common concerns, offer support to one-another, and learn up-to-date and accurate information on research in the field of VTE.
We have decided to take it to the next level by inviting different physicians to serve as our moderators in upcoming months. Each of them will present their own updates in thrombosis medicine and treament and offer new perspective. Join us and other survivors of VTE in what promises to be a rewarding and educational event. Family members and friends of those afflicted with VTE are also invited to attend. All you need to join is a computer or phone and internet connection!
To register for this Online Support Group, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out our online form.
Below is a list of dates and information about our upcoming meetings:
Monday, April 24th at 7:00 pm with John Fanikos RPh, MBA, the Director of Pharmacy at Brigham and Women's Hospital.
