Participate in Global Events and Plan Activities in Your Local Community

In less than two months, thousands of advocates and supporters around the world will join together on 13 October to amplify awareness and knowledge about thrombosis for World Thrombosis Day (WTD) 2018. With one in four people worldwide dying from conditions caused by thrombosis, the WTD campaign is dedicated to urgently increasing global visibility about the condition to help save lives.

This year marks an important milestone as the WTD campaign celebrates its fifth anniversary. You can make a difference and be a part of the world's largest global movement to raise awareness about thrombosis. Check out these exciting opportunities to learn how you can get involved and support WTD 2018:
