NBCA Operations

As a nonprofit organization, NBCA provides outreach that spans both coasts. The primary functional areas of NBCA include:

Department of Communications & Health Marketing

NBCA’s Department of Communications & Health Marketing provides a broad spectrum of services and support to the organization and the organization’s constituencies, operating across organizational functions to ensure important communications support and specialized marketing expertise to help build public awareness about venous thromboembolism, and to address the information needs of a diverse community of individuals affected by blood clots and clotting disorders, including their caregivers and healthcare providers.

The Department also is responsible for the implementation of NBCA’s large-scale awareness and education programs, and serves as liaison with government, industry, and other advocacy influentials with whom NBCA partners.

Press releases and press inquiries are routed through NBCA’s Communications Department, and all matters pertaining to NBCA news, website, social media channels, and monthly e-Newsletters are driven by NBCA’s communications team.

Contact Lisa Fullam, NBCA’s Director of Communications & Health Marketing, with comments or inquiries about the organization’s communications efforts and educational programs.

Department of Development and Regional Affairs

The Department of Development and Regional Affairs of NBCA is responsible for all fundraising activities of the organization both nationally and locally. Working with volunteers throughout the country we assist individuals and companies in hosting a variety of fundraisers in their region. Events include Walks, Runs, Golf Tournaments and corporate sponsored activities. Our department also supports and encourages the efforts of Team Stop the Clot. These individual athletes engage in run or walk activities honoring their own survival or remembering someone less fortunate.  The funds they raise and the awareness they generate are a victory for our Team and for the several hundred thousands of people each year in the U.S. who are affected by DVTs and PEs.

Contact Tarin Patrikis, NBCA’s Director of Development and Regional Affairs, with comments or inquires about NBCA’s fund raising efforts and volunteer-driven information and events.
