Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in breakout group discussions during the session, organized by language. Participants will also have the chance to ask questions and hear from other national member organizations (NMOs) and participants.

Luisa Durante, WFH Head of Programs & Education, will provide information about the Global VWD Call to Action and its importance for the bleeding disorder community. The webinar will also include presentations by Chedia Aroua (Tunisia), Cassie Osejo (Panama), and Louise Ellwood (South Africa) on the actions their NMOs have taken regarding VWD. This portion of the webinar will be moderated by Dawn Rotellini, WFH Board of Directors Lay Member.

We encourage you to submit questions in advance by emailing the WFH at [email protected], no later than Friday, August 21, 2020. Participants can also ask questions during the session and presenters will try their best—time permitting—to answer. We look forward to seeing you online!
