UNC at Chapel Hill 12th HHT Center in U.S.

The HHT Foundation is excited to annouce a new partnership with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr. Raj Kasthuri, Director, has  team of HHT physicians/specialists that have been treating HHT patients for several years and they are ready to serve you and your family.

Dr. Raj Kasthuri, assistant professor of hematology and oncology in the UNC School of Medicine, is director of the new HHT Center and is a member of the UNC Hemophilia and Thrombosis Center (HTC) as well as the UNC McAllister Heart Institute.

In 2008, Dr. Kasthuri attended the CDC meeting, ‘HHT Health Initiatives for the 21st Century’ as a representative of the HTC community. As a hematologist, Dr. Kasthuri was convinced that he had HHT patients that were undiagnosed. He returned to UNC with a passion for HHT and immediately began speaking with Dr. Gossage, Medical Director for the HHT Foundation, to learn more about HHT and what was required to become a center of excellence.  Since that time, Dr. Kasthuri, and several of his staff members, have visited and received training from the Medical College of Georgia and Yale University. In addition, Dr. Kasthuri’s expertise in anemia and iron deficiency has become a valuable resource to other HHT Centers.

“Dr. Kasthuri has organized a team of specialists at UNC at Chapel Hill who are knowledgeable in the treatment and care of HHT. We are really excited about this new collaboration,” said Marianne Clancy, executive director of the HHT Foundation International.
