A message from Dr. Stephan Moll, Clot Connect Medical Director
We created the Clot Connect program in 2010 because of an unmet need for information on blood clots and clotting disorders. We could scarcely have imagined the demand we would soon encounter for our resources. Since then, nearly 400,000 people in over 190 countries have been connected to information on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
Our audience has grown rapidly and today we reach over 30,000 people per month with our educational information. We have received very positive feedback about the program and its information from patients and health care professionals.
With the success comes a challenge. It takes funds to conduct an outreach program. It takes funds to maintain the program in its present form, and even more to expand its services. Clot Connect currently receives no federal, state or university financial assistance.
For us to continue to provide free public educational outreach, we must rely upon the generous support of private individuals like you. If you have found Clot Connect’s resources useful and would like to see its availability continue and grow, I ask you to please consider making a donation to support the program.
Thank you very much for your support of Clot Connect and our mission to increase knowledge of blood clots, clotting disorders, and treatment with blood thinners.
