Building Blocks of Success: Celebrating 15 Years of Service

The National Blood Clot Alliance (NBCA) is passionate about sharing information and raising awareness about blood clots and clot-provoked stroke, and this year, we are celebrating 15 years of service as the leading source of information and support in the clotting disorders community in the U.S.

To mark this special occasion, we are thrilled to unveil a new website. We invite you to be a part of this celebration, as well as a part of our growing community, by visiting and sharing the site: Read more on NBCA’s 15-Year Anniversary from the organization’s CEO here.

Thank you for being a valued member of our community, and for making the work that we do not only possible, but successful as well. Together, we can elevate awareness about this pressing public health issue to Stop the Clot® and save lives.  

NBCA recently unveiled its new website. Watch this short new video we produced to learn more about this work and our other initiatives.  
As part of our Women & Blood Clots program, we are sharing life-saving information about birth control and blood clot risks with over 8,000 college sorority chapters. Learn more.
