Kamila Jaszczor

Founder and Chief Executive Officer
Thrombophilia & Thrombosis Foundation
Poland

Jaszczor holds MCs in Sanitary Engineering from Gdańsk University of Technology in Poland and a postgraduate diploma in Science, Technique and Ethics from the University of Gdansk. She has worked with the State Sanitary Inspectorate since 2007, serving as the precautionary sanitary inspection senior assistant at Poviat Sanitary and Epidemiological Station in Kwidzyn.

In 2010, after being diagnosed with a deep vein thrombosis (DVT), Jaszczor discovered that there was limited information available online about blood clots, especially in her home country of Poland. Wanting to change the patient experience and to build much needed awareness, she created the online advocacy organization Trombofilia Polska, becoming Poland's first and only social network dedicated to disseminating knowledge about thrombosis to the community.

Jaszczor is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Thrombophilia & Thrombosis Foundation (TTF). She founded TTF in January 2020 after she was awarded the World Thrombosis Day 2019 Ambassador of the Year Award. Jaszczor serves as a patient representative on the World Thrombosis Day Steering Committee.

She is passionate about thrombosis and thrombophilia education, especially for pregnant women, as well as technological innovations and cycling. She resides with her family and black cat in Kwidzyn, Poland.
