December e-Newsletter | ‘Tis the Season

This holiday season, the National Blood Clot Alliance (NBCA) wishes you and the people you care about happiness and good health. When you’re gathering with friends, family, colleagues, and neighbors in the coming weeks, take a few moments to share important information about blood clot risks, signs and symptoms, and prevention. Sharing information, including your personal story, is one of the most important things you can do to help raise awareness and possibly reduce the number of lives lost to blood clots. Visit www.stoptheclot.org for information you can share and stay tuned to our social media channels — FacebookTwitter and Instagram — for personal stories you can share online.

We at NBCA — our Board of Directors, our Medical and Scientific Advisory Board members, and our staff — renew our commitment to provide you with the tools, resources, and information you need to live your healthiest life. We value our connections with you and the VTE community, and we wish you and your family a very healthy and happy Holiday Season and a peaceful New Year.
