Thank you for helping the National Blood Clot Alliance raise awareness about birth control and blood clot risks during National Women’s Health Week 2017. We partnered with the social media sharing platform Thunderclap to share one, united, life-saving message across social media on May 17. That message read: Hormonal birth control is a risk factor for life-threatening blood clots. Learn more. #NWHW

It was our goal to enlist 100 people to share this message across social media. Thanks to you, we had 117 people sign-up, which was 117 percent of our goal. With your support, this message was shared with 60,330 people across the social media platforms you use every day – Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr.

There were 696 click-throughs to our Women and Blood Clots Resources Page where women have direct access to life-saving information about how the choices they make about their health can place them at risk for a blood clot, especially if they are taking or considering taking hormonal birth control. Now, because of you, more people know about the risk factors, signs and symptoms of blood clots and knowing this information helps to saves lives.

Thank you to everyone who supported this effort:
