NBCA Community Thrombassadors

NBCA Community Thrombassadors is a network of patients, caregivers, and family members committed to spreading blood clot education, awareness, and prevention in their communities. In partnership with local organizations, thrombassadors share their personal stories—and life-saving information—about blood clots. Through this peer-to-peer program, thrombassadors help advance the prevention, early diagnosis and successful treatment of life-threatening blood clots among their neighbors, friends, and colleagues – and across their local communities.

NBCA will host training programs for thrombassadors, where members will learn their roles and expectations, resources available to utilize, history about the organization, speaking & media guidelines, blood clot terminology and statistics, and how to be the best blood clot advocate in their community. Certified thrombassadors will be able to host their own education and awareness events on behalf of the NBCA.
