September is ITP Awareness Month

itp_awareness_month3The Platelet Disorder Support Association is pleased to announce the designation of the month of September as national ITP Awareness MonthSM. PDSA requested this designation in 2010 to increase the public’s understanding of ITP and other platelet disorders, let patients and their families know that there are resources and support available to help them have the best possible outcomes, and that they are not alone.

PDSA offers a comprehensive array of education and support services to patients and their families as well as health care providers. We personally answer thousands of calls and emails each year, provide FREE educational materials and local support, and our Web site, pdsa.org, contains 200 + pages of valuable information about ITP, treatments, diet, and support and has become the premier news source for medical professionals and patients with ITP and other platelet disorders.


Please Take an Active Role in the Upcoming ITP Awareness MonthSM
This is the month we join together on behalf of our common goal -- to raise public awareness and create a better understanding of ITP.

Your active support is crucial as PDSA looks to the future. If each of us makes a goal to participate in ITP Awareness MonthSM, our strength will continue to build and make a positive difference in the lives of those living with ITP and other platelet disorders.
