Blood clots do not discriminate. They affect people of all ages, races and genders. One of the most important things you can do to prevent blood clots is to know if you are at risk. “Stago and the NBCA share a common concern in aiding patients who may be at risk for life-threating blood clots and we are pleased to support their mission to increase awareness and early diagnosis” said Tom Lawlor, COO of Diagnostica Stago, Inc. Hemostasis and Thrombosis education is a core value at Stago and they have focused their educational efforts to support laboratorians, clinical practitioners and others who assist patients with diagnosis and management of coagulopathies and related conditions.
