Coming soon - Web of FH

We are excited to preview a novel platform: Web of FH. This online tool  will benefit patients and their families in participating countries, helping them to find and connect with local FH clinics and support groups. FH specialists and support groups will be able to register and increase their digital presence, improving both communication and exchange of services and expertise throughout the network.
