Patient Stories Media Campaign


The Autoimmune Association’s Patient Stories media campaign aims to build awareness about autoimmune disease by sharing patient stories in local media outlets. Through these stories, we can help our neighbors, community leaders, local healthcare providers, and more learn more about autoimmune disease and the critical need for new research, better diagnostics, and effective treatments.

Your voice can have an enormous impact within your local community. This is an opportunity to make a difference by sharing your story.

If you would like to be considered for a story in your local media outlets, please complete the form below. We will be in touch with you soon to learn more about you and your story, and to prepare you for any media interviews.

Questions? Contact Colleen Kmiecik, Director of Marketing and Communications, at [email protected].

Thank you for your interest and advocacy!
