How FWGBD can help women/girls with blood disorders or who suspect they might have a blood disorder
The Foundation will educate providers so they will recognize symptoms; it will make information and education available to your healthcare providers.

FWGBD is partnering with organizations across the country
The Foundation is working with several organizations to ensure that physicians, nurses, and allied healthcare professionals receive education and information about women’s blood disorders.
