Medical ID Jewelry
Medical ID jewelry is essential for people with bleeding disorders. Wearing a Medical ID can potentially save your life as well as potentially prevent irreversible damage due to delayed treatment. If you are injured and unable to speak for yourself, or speak for your child with a bleeding disorder, the Medical ID can serve to provide emergency personnel with critical information.
WPBDF provides Medical ID Jewelry free of charge to our members with bleeding disorders. We have accounts with several merchants that specialize in Medical ID Jewelry. There are a variety of styles of necklaces and bracelets to choose from, for both adults and children.
