Blood Clots and Cancer: What You Need to Know

Register Online

Did you know 1 in 5 blood clots are related to cancer and its treatment? Treatments involving hospitalization, surgery, chemotherapy, and hormonal therapy can increase your blood clot risk. In collaboration with the National Blood Clot Alliance (NBCA), this program aims to inform all cancer patients about the risk of blood clots. The speaker, Jeffrey Zwicker, M.D. is an Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Chief of the Section of Benign Hematology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. He will share ways to reduce your risk by presenting some of the best ways to protect yourself from life-threatening blood clots. We will have two patients share their stories about blood clots: Olympia Cepeda, MPH, a breast cancer patient and the Director of LatinaSHARE and Senior Outreach, and Heidi Kugler, who is an ovarian cancer patient and member of SHARE's Ongoing Ovarian Cancer Support Group.

This program is in collaboration with the National Blood Clot Alliance (NBCA).
