Blood clots do not discriminate. They can affect anyone, regardless of age, ethnicity, or race. The National Blood Clot Alliance (NBCA) is the leading nonprofit organization in the United States focused singularly on building awareness and building community among people who are affected by blood clots or at increased risk for blood clots, including people with clotting disorders, atrial fibrillation, cancer, traumatic injury, and risks related to hospitalization and surgery, lengthy immobility, childbirth, and hormonal birth control.
NBCA’s leadership and staff combine the unique perspectives of healthcare providers, individuals who are personally affected by clotting disorders, and health education and policy experts who are passionate about this crucial public health challenge. Each member of our clotting disorders community is essential to the work that we do, makes us stronger as a group, and brings us one step closer to the realization of NBCA’s vision of a future in which the number of people suffering and dying from blood clots in the United States is reduced significantly.
