Title: Im moving to Chicago and I need some help.
Post by: wario on May 27, 2019, 01:03:46 PM

Hi I am 24 year old thal major from India who is planning on moving to Chicago for my higher studies.

I was hoping i could get some information about the transfusion places in Chicago. I have heard that it is done at Children's hospital of Chicago. Does anyone have a email Id contact that I could speak to over there?

Another thing is the insurance. Which insurance would you recommend I take which will cover most of the expenses. I am actually a US citizen by birth but I don't know if that helps.

Thanks,
Krunal
