Join us for a Thunderclap for World Preeclampsia Day on May 22, 2017!

May 10, 2017


May is National Preeclampsia Awareness Month here in the United States, but this year, the Preeclampsia Foundation is pleased to cosponsor the first-ever World Preeclampsia Day with @BabyCenter, Ending Eclampsia/USAID, ISSHP & PRE-EMPT.   Let’s make our message heard worldwide by joining our Thunderclap on May 22 at 8am Eastern Standard Time!

What’s a Thunderclap you ask???   Social media is an easy way to say something, but it’s a difficult way to be heard. A Thunderclap is the first-ever crowdspeaking platform that helps people be heard by saying something together.  When the “thunder” strikes, a single message is mass-shared by everyone who joined, flash mob-style, so it rises above the noise of your social networks and spreads awareness quickly.
