Have you or someone you’re caring for ever had a pulmonary embolism (PE)?

If so, this support group series is for you!

In a small number of patients who’ve had blood clots in their lungs (also known as a pulmonary embolism, or PE), the clots don’t go away. These patients can be at risk of developing CTEPH, or Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension. CTEPH can be deadly, but is curable!

We at NATF understand the unique concerns that patients face when dealing with blood clots and are pleased to launch a new support group specifically for long-PE and CTEPH patients. This group will provide a safe space to connect with others, receive support, and have questions answered.

Each group will begin with short participant introductions (your name, where you’re from, and one sentence about why you’re joining the group and/or your experience with blood clots.) A clinician will then answer general questions. You may submit questions in advance when you register. 

Please note that our featured experts cannot provide personalized medical advice.
