House of Representatives
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: March 6, 2020 11:18 AM
From: Representative Thomas P. Murt
To: All House members
Subject: Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Awareness Month - March 2020
I plan on introducing a resolution to designate the month of March 2020 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 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, up to 900,000 Americans are affected annually by DVT, yet, most Americans (74 percent) have little or no awareness of DVT.

It is my hope that this resolution will be a continued effort to increase public awareness of DVT throughout Pennsylvania. Please consider co-sponsoring this resolution.
