Afternoon Tea at the Signet Library

cake 2

Well, it is Afternoon Tea week, so what better time could there be to announce our upcoming Women’s Group event?!

On 11th September, we will be going back to The Signet Library, Parliament Square, The Royal Mile, Edinburgh (from 1:30 – 4pm). This meet up will give us the opportunity to review our objectives, and plan our upcoming activities (also a good excuse for cake and a catch up!).

Asbloodbooth a result of our first two meetings, we  produced a leaflet on women with bleeding disorders for the My Girl’s Blood Booth at the WFH Congress in Orlando July 2016. Our leaflet aimed to bring relevant information and awareness to health professionals, and women and girls with bleeding disorders. All our thanks go to Susan Warren for taking the leaflet to Orlando, and to Cheryl Nineff D’Ambrosio of My Girl’s Blood Booth – it looked like a great success!.

We have lots of other exciting ideas to discuss, and we are setting up an email group. If you are not a member, and would like to join, please get in touch with me at emma@haemophilia.scot or 0131 281 0857.

The Haemophilia Scotland Women’s group was formed on 31st January 2016, especially for women affected by von Willebrands Disease, haemophilia and those who carry the gene.
