March is Deep Vein Thrombosis Awareness Month! Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Awareness Month is a multi-faceted campaign aimed at raising awareness among consumers, healthcare professionals and policy-makers about DVT and PE blood clots on a national and local level. Click here to learn the history of Deep Vein Thrombosis Awareness Month.

Below you will find information on ways that you can help raise awareness of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) awareness (click each title for more information). If you are hosting or know of a DVT Awareness activity, please let me know and I will be happy to list it. You can contact me directly with your DVT Awareness activities at webmaster@clotcare.org

Tell a Friend About Deep Vein Thrombosis

You can help spread awareness of deep vein thrombosis by sending an email to your friends and colleagues. We have created an email form to help you spread the word. Click here to complete the email form to start spreading the word about deep vein thrombosis.


Post Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Awareness Fliers

We invite you to help spread awareness by posting fliers about Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Awareness Month in your clinics and communities. Please only post these fliers in places where you have permission or authority to do so. The flier includes important facts about DVT and ClotCare's Web address so that interested individuals know where to get more information. Click here to download the flier. Note that the flier is a pdf document. If you have any trouble with the download, please let me know at webmaster@clotcare.org.


Share Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Awareness Handouts

Click here to download a handout with key facts about deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. You can certainly post this handout as a flier, but it has both a front and a back, so it can serve as a handout, too.

Horizon Vascular Specialists, a group of vascular surgeons in Maryland, also has shared with us a DVT infographic that they put together for their patients. Feel free to download, print, and share this handout, too!
