The Thalassemia Western Consortium (TWC) is a regional network of 11 thalassemia treatment centers in the Western United States. The TWC is led by Dr. Ashutosh Lal, the director of the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland thalassemia program, and aims to establish collaborative thalassemia standards of care, collect data on thalassemia services and outcomes, and reach hematologists outside of their group. The TWC is meeting for its 5th annual meeting, which will have a special focus on transition of care for patients with thalassemia.
