Everyone goes through physical and emotional changes as they age. People with hemophilia have particular issues and challenges at different stages in their life, even with advances in chronic disease management.
How to handle these life events will be addressed by an expert panel this morning at 10:45 during “Ageing with Hemophilia: Issues and Challenges Through Different life Stages.”
Speakers from across the globe will address young (18 to 25 years – Ekawat Suwantaroj, Thailand), middle (25 to 40 years – Sergii Shemets, Ukraine) and older (50+ years – Val Bias, USA) adult issues. The panel will also include a psychologist – Anne Duffy, Ireland; an orthopedist – Adolfo Llinas, Colombia; and a dentist – Andrew Brewer, United Kingdom, presenting observations on ageing from their respective disciplines.
