Hey you guys! What are you doing on May 20th? Wanna know what you should be doing? Okay!
May 20th is the first ever World Autoimmune Arthritis Day hosted by the International Autoimmune Arthritis Movement (IAAM). The 47 hour-long event – long enough to cover May 20th in every time zone! – is a free convention on the internets presenting wonderful information on living and coping with all types of autoimmune arthritis.
Autoimmune arthritis, a term developed by IAAM and a team of rheumatologists, is defined as any of the following diseases: Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Sjorgen’s Syndrome, Systemic Lupus Erythematosis, Still’s Disease, Juvenile Arthritis, and both Mixed and Undifferentiated Connective Tissue Diseases. The criteria for being labeled as autoimmune arthritis can be found at the link above.
So please check out WAAD. There will be live presentations and chats, as well as downloadable presentations. Yours truly is currently working on her downloadable presentation on Making the Most of Your Healthy Time. It’s going to be amazing!
I won’t be able to participate as much as I would like, as I’ll be trying to become best friends with the producers of Jeopardy so that I can go to LA. Oooh, life is tough sometimes 🙂
Please, please check this out! You won’t be sorry you did!
Note: If you’re interested in learning more about IAAM, you can find more information at the link above or feel free to contact me. It’s one of the wonderful organizations that I volunteer with, and I’ve met so many amazing people there who are really working hard for awareness. It’s one of the best things I ever did to become involved with them.
