DVT & PE Support Groups: NATF Works to Establish a National Network

Updated January, 2013
Originally posted June, 2011

The North American Thrombosis Forum (NATF) is working to establish a national network of support groups for patients with deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and/or pulmonary embolism (PE). Any parties interested in forming such a support group should contact Kathryn Mikkelsen at kzmikkelsen@partners.org.

Since the initiative was launched just over a year ago, 5 new support groups have been added: 2 in Canada; 1 in Philadelphia, PA; 1 in Chicago, IL; and 1 in Orlando, FL. Groups are also in the progress of forming in St. Louis, MO, Chicago, IL, and Orange, CA. If you are interested in forming a support group in your area, please contact Kathryn Mikkelsen at kzmikkelsen@partners.org.

Contact information for active support groups is available on the NATF website at http://www.natfonline.org/patients/
dvt-pe-support-group/active-support-groups/

For additional details, visit the NATF website at www.natfonline.org/patients/dvt-pe-support-group/
