McMaster University prof kicks off platelet support group in Canada

"Donald Arnold, associate professor of medicine, is helping jump start the Platelet Disorder Support Association (PDSA) in Canada, a not-for-profit patient advocacy group that has been very active in the U.S. It aims to improve the lives of people with ITP and other platelet disorders through education, advocacy, research and support.

Arnold, a hematologist, is a medical advisor for the PDSA, which is holding its first meeting April 29 in Montreal. This meeting is geared for ITP patients, caregivers and the medical community."
