WAAD’s uppppppp?!? 

I bet that got your attention.  If it makes you feel better, I’ve now got that commercial playing through my head continuously.  Lovely.

BUT.  I say this because- WHO’S EXCITED FOR THE FIRST EVER WORLD AUTOIMMUNE ARTHRITIS DAY coming up on May 20th?

I think it’s safe to say that I am!

For those of you still unfamiliar, don’t let my lame attempts at humor dissuade allow me to provide you some detail:

Established and hosted by IAAM, this awareness event/virtual conference will be held annually on May 20th, online and during all time zones, making it a 47-hour online event.

It will feature:

-Live and on-demand presentations led by patient experts around subjects we all face to include:

“Who Am I Now?  Living With Unexpected Disability”

“Working Around Your Disability-From Cooking to Daily Tasks”

“Parenting a JA’er”

“Building Your Self Image”

-Scheduled live chat sessions and surveys

-Live call to action posts interactive for attendees that will immediately increase visibility and awareness

-Access to an online library of downloadable resources that can help you and supporters in managing your diseases.

This truly is an international day, with WAAD already being registered on 16 health calendars internationally and receiving nonprofit support from organizations to include the Spondylitis Association of America, Arthritis New Zealand, the International Still’s Disease Foundation, and Lupus UK.

So…I’m sure you’re thinking that there’s a catch, right?  Nope!  You can register here for free!

So WAAD’s uppppp?!?  Go ahead and register!  I’ll “see” you there!
