Experts Teach on Anticoagulant and Antiplatelet Update

OSU Wexner Medical Center logo Experts Teach on Anticoagulant and Antiplatelet Update. Aspirin is now used to prevent and treat cardiovascular disease due to its antithrombotic effects. It even prevents cancer! Our understanding of Aspirin and it’s benefits and harms has advanced tremendously in recent years. We also have several new antiplatelet and anticoagulant options.

We are pleased to introduce Doctor of Pharmacy Alyssa Rinaldi who is the Outpatient Anticoagulation Clinic lead & Danielle Blais who is a Doctor of Pharmacy and Lead Specialty Practice Pharmacist of OSU Cardiology.
