So much of our community programming and education is focused around teenagers and yet oftentimes our teenagers seem like mysteries to us. What is it like being a teen with a bleeding disorder and what would make their lives easier? To celebrate Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month we asked teen, Brian Ragaishis, to join us on Ask the Expert to share why he created Live Smart, Play Smart, a website that creates community for other teens affected by bleeding disorders by telling their story. Brian, a former Teen Impact Award winner, joins us to share how the idea was born and why it was so important to connect with his peers. A unique episode of Ask the Expert!
