House of Representatives
Session of 2015 - 2016 Regular Session


Posted: February 1, 2016 11:28 AM
From: Representative Thomas P. Murt
To: All House members
Subject: March 2016 as Deep Vein Thrombosis Awareness Month
In the near future, I intend to introduce a resolution designating March 2016 as “Deep Vein Thrombosis Awareness Month” in Pennsylvania.

March is national Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Awareness Month, a public health initiative aimed at raising awareness of this commonly occurring medical condition and its potentially fatal complication, pulmonary embolism.

According to the American Heart Association, up to 2 million Americans are affected annually by DVT, more commonly known as blood clots. Yet, most Americans (74 percent) have little or no awareness of DVT.

Please join me in co-sponsoring this resolution to increase awareness of the signs, symptoms, and risk factors of DVT.

Introduced as HR700
