Wishing You Comfort & Joy

This time of year is filed with joy, as we take part in holiday festivities and traditions with family and friends, and the holiday season marks a time for new beginnings and renewed commitment to the things in our lives that matter most. As one year comes to a close and another begins, NBCA is renewing its commitment to you and the community of individuals affected by blood clots and clotting disorders that we serve. In the upcoming year, we will expand the programs and services we provide, and also the crucial information we share about blood clots. 

We at NBCA -- our Board of Directors, our Medical and Scientific Advisory Board members, and our staff -- renew our commitment to provide you with the tools, resources, and information you need to live your healthiest life. We value and take great pride and comfort in our connections to the community, and we wish you and your family a very healthy and happy Holiday Season and a peaceful New Year.
