THSNA brings together the leading hemostasis and thrombosis organizations and experts to provide insight on improving patient care. This year’s Summit will highlight basic science, clinical, and laboratory information that reflects the latest understanding of bleeding and clotting disorders.  The Summit will host over 1,500 healthcare professionals and coagulation scientists who are committed to the diagnosis, management and improved understanding of thrombotic and bleeding disorders.

NBCA will be attending as 1 of the 13 leading non-profit organizations in the fields of thrombosis and hemostasis. This summit is a time for members to network, learn, and share current findings with one another. NBCA has 4 Board and MASAB members who will present their recent findings surrounding improving patient care, the psychological impact of thrombosis in athletes, mental health outcomes of pulmonary embolism survivors (the CLUES Study), and what the future holds in terms of anticoagulation therapies.
