During Blood Clot Awareness Month, many in the clotting community come together to amplify awareness about an often silent but potentially life-threatening condition that impacts millions of people around the globe. Dangerous blood clots currently affect about 1 in 4 people worldwide.

As the community comes together in its awareness efforts this month, teamwork plays a crucial role in fostering a deeper understanding of blood clots and empowering individuals to take charge of their health.

Raising awareness about blood clots requires a collective effort from communities, healthcare professionals, and organizations. The more people know about the risk factors, symptoms, and preventive measures associated with blood clots, the better equipped they are to protect themselves and their loved ones. By coming together as a community, we create a powerful force against the public health impact of blood clots.

Individual Empowerment

Empowering individuals involves arming them with knowledge and resources to make informed decisions about their well-being. Through an improved understanding about the risk factors associated with blood clots and recognition of blood clot symptoms and preventive measures, individuals can significantly reduce their chances of being harmed by this often preventable condition.

Encouraging Action

The Rowan Foundation, focused on women’s health and clotting, works to provide valuable resources to aid in this collective effort and, as we navigate Blood Clot Awareness Month, we know that it’s crucial to translate knowledge into action. Therefore, we encourage you to share the resources available on the Rowan Foundation’s website with friends, family, colleagues, and your social media networks. Encourage them to explore the information, engage in discussions, and recognize the continuum of blood clot risks that women face throughout their lifetime.

In working together and empowering individuals, we create a valuable ripple effect: Together, we can optimize awareness and empower individuals to take charge of their health during Blood Clot Awareness Month and beyond, ensuring that our collective effort also has a lasting impact that will save lives.
