Multidisciplinary plenary: Women ageing gracefully | Virtual Summit 2020


In this plenary from the WFH 2020 Virtual Summit, Kate Khair, Michelle Lavin, Rezan Abdul-Kadir & Jameela Sathar will address women’s long-term health issues and improve screening, as well as answer any questions from the virtual audience.

This plenary has a special emphasis on women and those who care for them, and aims to identify the issues that women with bleeding disorders may face as they age. This may include arthropathy associated with joint bleeds, increased fracture risk due to osteoporosis, gynecological malignancy and the need for surgical intervention for cardiac disease.
