Clots

Thromboembolism (injurious blood clots) claims more victims than cancer and is mostly preventable. This is an unparalleled public health opportunity. The American Public Health Association and CDC launched a DVT Leadership Coalition in February. The main objective is to raise awareness among health care workers and the public about how to avoid thromboembolism. One of the easiest ways to raise awareness and reduce the numbers of DVT victims is to tell people how to avoid air travel thrombosis.
