Educational Webinar: Education for Women & Crafting Activity
This was the seventeenth event in our Webinar Wednesday Series. Throughout this series, we will be hosting a live webinar or virtual hangout every Wednesday evening about various topics of interest and importance in our community.
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.
