World Thrombosis Day (WTD) represents a collective drive to increase awareness and action through educational activities for the public and health professionals. Monday October 13, 2014 will mark the first, international observance of this effort.

At the heart of WTD are dozens of thrombosis and hemostasis societies, patient advocacy groups, medical/scientific organizations and other interested parties from around the world who seek to:

  •     Increase the awareness about the prevalence and risks from thrombosis
  •     Reduce the number of undiagnosed cases
  •     Increase the implementation of evidence-based prevention
  •     Encourage health care systems to implement strategies to ensure “best practices” for prevention, diagnosis and treatment
  •     Advocate for adequate resources for these efforts and increased support for research to reduce the disease burden from thrombosis
  •     Ultimately save lives

On October 13, 2014 at 1:00PM EST, three leaders in the field of thrombosis education: Anticoagulation Forum, National Blood Clot Alliance and Clot Connect will combine their resources to present a one- hour, live webinar for patients dealing with thrombosis. The Q & A format will be moderated by Dr. Stephan Moll, Professor in the Department of Medicine and Division of Hematology-Oncology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Medical Director at Clot Connect. Patients and their providers may log on, at no cost, to participate in this educational program to help them navigate the often confusing world of anticoagulation therapy and lifestyle changes related to thrombotic disorders.
