The Mid-Atlantic Region Thalassemia Network (Thal-MAR) is a multidisciplinary consortium of health care professionals focused on enhancing knowledge and improving clinical care for individuals with thalassemia.

The overall goal of Thal-MAR is to improve the health and well-being for individuals with clinically significant thalassemia by increasing access to high quality, standardized thalassemia care within the mid-Atlantic region (MAR).

Thal-MAR is a joint initiative of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and supported through a grant from the Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA).

The Thal-MAR network is hosted on Sosido. Members receive a weekly email digest with news and notices from Thal-MAR, a summary of new publications authored by Thal-MAR members, new questions and answers in the Thal-MAR forum, and a summary of newly-released abstracts in the field of thalassemia.
