House of Representatives
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: February 10, 2017 09:25 AM
From: Representative Thomas P. Murt
To: All House members
Subject: Deep Vein Thrombosis Awareness Month – March 2017
I intend to introduce a resolution designating March 2017 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 HR101
