Consumer Empowerment Medical Symposium

Saturday, November 9, 2019 | 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Please join us on November 9th for our new Consumer Empowerment Medical Symposium. Attendees will spend the day at the Milwaukee Hilton City Center learning about new treatments and what’s ahead in the research pipeline. New and emerging therapies, as well as those quickly gaining momentum in clinical trials, make the timing of this symposium fortuitous in many ways.



The symposium will offer consumers sessions focused on current and potential treatments for bleeding disorders. Speakers will provide patient-centered information about how these products work, we will also explore current and future insurance barriers, and talk about how consumers can work with their healthcare providers to navigate the ever-changing treatment landscape. Information will be presented about Hemophilia, von Willebrand disease (vWD), and other rare bleeding disorders in order to empower the consumers.
