The next two months mark a noteworthy time for the National Blood Clot Alliance (NBCA) and the communities that we serve:
February is American Heart Month, which provides a prime opportunity for us to share important information about atrial fibrillation, or AFib, which is an irregular heart rhythm that increases a person’s risk for clot-provoked stroke. Sharing information about risks, signs and symptoms, and prevention of clots that can cause dangerous strokes helps to save lives.
March is Blood Clot Awareness Month, or BCAM, which is perhaps one of the busiest times of the year for NBCA, because it is so important, in so many ways, to the patients, caregivers, healthcare professionals, and advocates we serve. Not only does BCAM provide an opportunity to unite as a community to share resources and stories, it also provides a crucial opportunity to share life-saving information about blood clots on a large and more far-reaching scale. We are anxious to share our 2019 BCAM plans, which will include some exciting new surprises, in the upcoming weeks. Sign up now for our Share to Stop the Clot® program and be the first to learn what we have in store for BCAM 2019, plus get life-saving information you can share on social media right now: Sign Up to Share.
