Gary Raskob, Ph.D., Chair of the Steering Committee for World Thrombosis Day sat down with ISTH TV to talk about the campaign’s efforts to raise global awareness of thrombosis. Responsible for one in four deaths worldwide, thrombosis is an underlying cause of heart attack, stroke and pulmonary embolism, contributing to a global healthcare burden. The mission of World Thrombosis Day is to heighten awareness with the public, healthcare practitioners and policy-makers about this preventable condition. With a reach of over 2.3 billion people, and over 800 partners globally, World Thrombosis Day provides local communities with resources to reach and educate patients, families and healthcare providers.
