Guest: Miguel Izquierdo
In this episode of HemoStories, Holly Olsen speaks with Miguel Izquierdo in Mexico City.
Himself a hemophiliac, Miguel Izquierdo understands the challenges of diagnosis and treatment. As the president of the Directive Board of the Mexican Federation of Hemophilia, he advocates for proper health care for thousands of hemophiliacs in Mexico. The group deals with insurance complications, cultural stigma, and maintaining quality of life.
This podcast was recorded in person in Mexico City, Mexico as part of a holiday donation trip of medical supplies and medical identification bracelets by HemoHelper volunteers, Holly and Kristen Olsen.
