As seasons shift from summer to fall, NBCA has been busy working on a multitude of projects vital to our mission. Summer revealed our newly redesigned website, while the return to school for students across U.S. college campuses led to the launch of our “Back to Campus” fall sorority program, which aims to share life-saving information about birth control and blood clot risks with more than 8,000 college sorority chapters. The momentum continues as we look ahead, and members of Team Stop the Clot® prepare for two iconic events: The Marine Corps 10K in October and the New York City Marathon in November. As we all move through this busy time of year, we hope you enjoy the fall season.
