Event Description

NATF’s Online 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. Each month is hosted by a different doctor, who presents on important new information for patients with blood clots.

In December, we will be joined by Dr. Samuel Berkman, who will provide an update on the latest information in anticoagulation. He will present, “What’s New? An Update on Bleeding While on Anticoagulants.”
