Join the Women & Blood Clots Movement | May e-Newsletter

Screen Shot 2016-05-09 at 11.16.09 AMThe National Blood Clot Alliance’s May e-Newsletter is here in recognition of National Women’s Health Week, which kicks off on Mother’s Day, May 8, and is celebrated through May 14, 2016. During this very special week, the National Blood Clot Alliance (NBCA) is empowering women to take charge of their health by highlighting the blood clot risks associated with estrogen-based birth control pills, pregnancy and childbirth, and the treatment of menopause symptoms.

For nearly every stage of a woman’s life, there is an associated blood clot risk. During the second week of May, the NBCA will be sharing material from our Women and Blood Clots Web portal – dedicated to informing women about the unique risk they face for blood clots – in a new and creative way across our social media channels. In the spirit of the core values associated with Women’s Health Week, our aim is to empower women to make their health a priority and take what steps they can to improve their health.

Also in this issue, we have highlighted American Stroke Month and the importance of recognizing the risk factors, signs and symptoms for stroke. Just like blood clots, the most important thing you can to protect yourself from stoke is to first know if you are at risk and second, be able to recognize signs and symptoms and seek medical attention.
