National Blood Clot Alliance Launches a New Women's Health Initiative With Alexandra L. Rowan Memorial Foundation

The National Blood Clot Alliance (NBCA) recently announced its partnership with the Alexandra L. Rowan Memorial Foundation in the creation of Women & Blood Clots, a unique, new women’s health initiative focused on raising awareness of the continuous clotting challenges that confront women at different, crucial life stages: Birth Control & Family Planning, Pregnancy & Childbirth, and the onset of Menopause Symptoms that might be treated with hormone therapy.

The main feature of this education program involves a distinguishing web portal, www.womenandbloodclots.orgcreated by NBCA that focuses solely on the information women need to know about their potential risk for blood clots. NBCA also presented a compelling infographic and a multi-part video series tailored to address women’s blood clot risks and potential options for risk reduction.   

Through their partnership, the NBCA and the Rowan Foundation also plan to implement a research initiative intended to improve understanding about the correlation between massive pulmonary embolism and estrogen-based birth control pills.  

Visit the newly presented Women & Blood Clots web portal, and share this important information with other women today!
