The Coalition to Prevent Deep-Vein Thrombosis

The mission of the Coalition to Prevent Deep-Vein Thrombosis is:

To reduce the immediate and long-term dangers of deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), which together comprise one of the nation’s leading causes of death. The Coalition will educate the public, healthcare professionals and policy-makers about risk factors, symptoms and signs associated with DVT as well as identify evidence-based measures to prevent morbidity and mortality from DVT and PE.
