Ottawa Hemochromatosis Information and Awareness Seminar
March 28, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Are you of Northern European descent? Do you have Celtic blood in you? People in these populations are at risk for inheriting iron overload, also known as hereditary hemochromatosis, a potentially life threatening condition which often goes unrecognized. Complications and death due to undiagnosed and untreated hemochromatosis can be prevented. Come to this free information and awareness seminar to learn about symptoms, screening tests, genetics of hemochromatosis and treatment.
Venue: The Ottawa Hospital – Riverside Campus Amphitheatre
