A Stop The Clot® Forum is an interactive program that provides basic information about blood clots, signs and symptoms, risk factors, prevention and treatment.  Stop The Clot® Forums provide a venue to share up-to-date information to those whose lives are affected by blood clots and clotting disorders with experts in the field.   Following attendance at a Stop The Clot® Forum, attendees will be better equipped to make decisions about their health, communicate with their health care providers and cope with living with blood clots and clotting disorders.

National Blood Clot Alliance’s Stop The Clot® Forums are funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). NBCA’s goal is to close the knowledge gaps about blood clots and clotting disorders by providing health information to patients and family members.

Each year over 100,000 people die from undiagnosed blood clots, making it one of the leading causes of death in the United States.

The National Blood Clot Alliance’s mission is to advance prevention, early diagnosis and successful treatment of blood clots, clotting disorders and clot-provoked strokes through public awareness, advocacy and patient and professional education.   For questions call Alan Brownstein at 917.209.2000 or contact him by email at abrownstein@stoptheclot.org
