ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION

We know the patient because we are the patient

The National Blood Clot Alliance (NBCA) is a patient-led, voluntary health advocacy organization which combines the unique perspectives of healthcare providers, individuals afflicted with clotting disorders, and community leaders who are passionate about this healthcare crisis. Many of the volunteers at NBCA are the nation's foremost experts on blood clots and clotting disorders who all work together to accomplish patient education and professional training programs about the signs, symptoms, and prevention of blood clots and clotting disorders. NBCA’s Medical and Scientific Advisory Board (MASAB) includes nationally recognized experts in thrombosis and thrombophilia, and the organization is a member of both the Thrombosis and Hemostasis Societies of North America and the National Health Council.

Our Mission

The National Blood Clot Alliance (NBCA) is a 501(c)(3), non-profit, voluntary health organization dedicated to advancing the prevention, early diagnosis and successful treatment of life-threatening blood clots such as deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and clot-provoked stroke. NBCA works on behalf of people who may be susceptible to blood clots, including, but not limited to, people with clotting disorders, atrial fibrillation, cancer, traumatic injury, and risks related to surgery, lengthy immobility, child birth and birth control. NBCA accomplishes its mission through programs that build public awareness, educate patients and healthcare professionals, and promote supportive public and private sector policy.
