TAG's Newest Board Member: You!

November 12, 2010 – The Thalassemia Action Group (TAG), the patient-run support group, is inviting you to become a member of its Board.


Founded in 1985, TAG’s mission is:

  • To promote a positive attitude toward life.
  • To stress the importance of compliance and chelation therapy.
  • To provide patients with a channel of communication and information.


TAG is a patient-run support group that helps individuals meet the challenges associated with thalassemia. TAG enables people with thalassemia to have contact with others who share similar experiences and who can offer advice and support. TAG also works to spread information on the latest advances in care for thalassemia and to ensure that each person with thalassemia has the information necessary to obtain the best treatments available.
