Blood clots can and do affect anyone regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, or race. On average, one person dies from a blood clot every six minutes in the United States. That equals about 274 deaths each day, or 100,000 deaths a year. Too many lives are lost because public awareness about blood clots is so low. Studies have shown that fewer than 1 in 4 people have any recognition of blood clots, or their signs and symptoms.
Many of these deaths can be prevented simply by sharing life-saving information with the people that you know. During Men’s Health Week June 10-16 connect with NBCA on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram — or get all of our social medial content here — and help us Share to Stop the Clot®.
