Thank you to everyone who participated in Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Awareness Month and helped spread awareness of deep vein thrombosis and its potentially fatal complication pulmonary embolus (PE). Please help us continue to spread awareness year-round so that we can prevent DVT and PE. You are always welcome to refer people to ClotCare for answers to their questions about deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and related issues, and, of course, if you have any questions, please let us know via email at webmaster@clotcare.com.

DVT Awareness by Design - Show us Your Socks!

The Coalition to Prevent Deep-Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is inviting you, healthcare communities and individuals across the country to participate in DVT Awareness by Design.

DVT Awareness by Design is a visual way for people to show their support and increase awareness for DVT. We hope that by designing a sock and wearing it proudly during DVT Awareness Month in March, you will serve as an ambassador in your community to educate colleagues, patients, friends and family about DVT care and treatment.

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Awareness Month: DVT Awareness by Design Socks

DVT Awareness by Design goes beyond building awareness of signs and symptoms by actively empowering healthcare communities and individuals to show their support through designing and personalizing their own socks, to showcase what DVT means to them. Together, we can provide meaningful education and information that is both engaging and effective in raising awareness for a condition that affects up to three million Americans annually.

Be sure to take a picture of yourself wearing your DVT Awareness sock(s) and send it to the DVT Coalition to be posted in the DVT Awareness by Design Photo Album. You are also welcome to send your pictures to webmaster@clotcare.com, and we will post it in our photo album. If you email us your picture, you are also welcome to include a suggested caption.

Special Note for Healthcare Professionals: The DVT Coalition has DVT Awareness by Design Kits and DVT Awareness Public Service Announcement posters available for use in your healthcare communities. For more information, click here to visit the DVT Awareness by Design website for healthcare professionals.
