About This Webinar
This webinar was held on Wednesday, October 7.
This special edition Webinar Wednesday was for females (ages 18+) with a bleeding disorder, carriers, and caregivers. The first part of the webinar featured an interactive presentation on how women inherit hemophilia, what it means to be a carrier, and the effects on women and girls. After the discussion, attendees created a fall-themed craft (pictured here), led by artist and community member, Josh Tezak.
