Join Us for Autoimmune Awareness Month

To our Autoimmune Community:

Today, March 1st, marks the start of Autoimmune Awareness Month.

This month presents a unique opportunity for patients, caregivers, healthcare providers, and advocates from across autoimmune therapeutic areas to collectively raise our voices to drive change.

Awareness is an essential component to accelerating education, research, and patient-centered policy reform.

And we can’t raise awareness without you.

The most powerful way to raise awareness is by sharing your personal story. Whether that be publicly on social media or through intimate conversations with members of your community…every story counts. Each time you tell your story and educate one new person on what it means to live with an autoimmune condition, you are facilitating meaningful change.

This March, we hope you will be brave and share your story. Each story shared brings us one step closer to a world that truly understands what it means to live with an autoimmune disease. Understanding yields action – action to do everything we can to unlock new treatments and someday cures, for the autoimmune community.

If you’re ready to share your story with a broader network, please consider submitting your story on our website here.

In addition to sharing your story, we have a full list of ways that you can get involved in Autoimmune Awareness Month:

Host a grassroots fundraiser

Grassroots fundraisers are a great way to raise both awareness for autoimmune diseases and fund our mission. Download our fundraising guide for tips on how to share your story in a way that moves others, creative fundraising ideas, and tools and templates to make organizing your fundraiser a breeze.
