Activity Overview

This video and text-based program is designed for health care professionals to explore the diagnosis and treatment of hereditary angioedema (HAE) through a unique perspective, putting the patient voice front and center. A patient will lend their expertise to this program by sharing their journey with HAE, from the impact on her quality of life to treatment successes. Expert faculty will focus on opportunities for earlier diagnosis of HAE, disease burden, and the efficacy and safety of therapies recommended for acute swelling attacks as well as short- and long-term prophylaxis.
