You are not alone.

After experiencing a blood clot, it’s normal to have a lot of questions. Many people are left feeling confused about why this happened to them and are anxious about it happening again. Illness-focused support groups can be very beneficial to patients. NATF’s Blood Clot support groups allow patients to:

  • Find accurate information about blood clots
  • Learn about current research from an expert
  • Share first-hand experiences with other patients
  • Help one another cope with the physical and psychological challenges of a clot

Interested in starting a Blood Clot Support Group? NATF can help

NATF is looking for patients, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, or family members to help start support groups across North America.

With short appointment times, it can be difficult for patients to get support and the answers they need to understand and process their diagnosis. Patients that supplement appointments with a support group feel more confident, more knowledgeable, and more hopeful about their diagnosis.

If you’re interested in starting your own Blood Clot Support Group, contact us at events@natfonline.org or at 617-730-4120.


Ask The Expert: An Open Forum

Ask the Expert (ATE) is a live quarterly forum where you can ask questions about blood clots and heart health. Through ATE, we hope to more directly connect patients, caregivers, and families with leaders in the thrombosis field. This forum will take the place of our monthly online support group sessions. You can find recordings from past support groups below. To register for Ask The Expert, click on the date below.
