The Women and Bleeding Disorders Brunch held on Sunday, February 19th was very well attended and the speakers were wonderful! This brunch was part of CHS-MB’s commitment to the new awareness program called, “Coderouge; when women bleed too much”. The goal of this new program is to identify undiagnosed women with bleeding disorders and ensure that they have access to appropriate medical care from health care providers with expertise in bleeding disorders and the specific issues that relate to women.

Thank you to Dr. Sara Israels, Melissa Hicks, Dr. Dawn Goodyear, Nora Schwetz and Milena Pirnat for their excellent presentations. Thank you to Chef Kelly Andreas and the staff at Shooter’s Family Restaurant for the wonderful brunch and hospitality.

Thank you to Maureen Scurfield who wrote about the event in the Winnipeg Free Press in her, “The Insider” column on Wednesday, February 22nd. We hope that women who are managing inherited bleeding disorders will learn that CHS-MB is a place that is for them and that can offer services and resources to them.

On May 25, 2012, the CHS will launch coderouge by hosting the 1st Canadian Conference on Bleeding Disorders in Women, in Toronto. You will find attached the conference announcement.
