Like many physicians, I learned about hereditary angioedema (HAE) during a brief moment in my years of education and training. Had I not worked at CSL Behring, HAE would likely never cross my mind again, given its rarity.
Medical professionals juggle troves of clinical information, and on HAE Day we help keep the disease top of mind. Because HAE attacks can be life-threatening if they occur in the throat, it is extremely important for healthcare professionals to know what to do when they encounter a patient, even if their only other experience with the condition was during their medical training.
