Concurrent 6 – Getting stronger safely

1045-1215 | Saturday 9 October, 2021

Chaired by Abi Polus, in 'Concurrent 6 – Getting stronger safely' we delve into the research behind exercise for boys and men with haemophilia, and how we can more effectively make use of our time at the gym. These sessions were presented at the 20th Australian Conference on Haemophilia, VWD and Rare Bleeding Disorders, held virtually on 8-9 October 2021. Watch the recording below.
