International Ataxia Awareness Day
International Ataxia Awareness Day (IAAD) is on September 25th of each year. It is a coordinated effort from individuals and Ataxia organizations around the world to help shed light on this rare disease. NAF is committed to leading the way on this outreach effort – but we need your help! We encourage individuals and disease organizations to join us by planning events and/or awareness campaigns for IAAD.
Join Our #AskMeAboutAtaxia Campaign
A great way to spread awareness is to encourage people to learn about Ataxia. The best way to help others understand something that they are unfamiliar with is to allow them to ask questions. For IAAD, we’re starting an “Ask Me About Ataxia” movement! Post a photo of yourself or your group with a sign that says, “Ask Me About Ataxia.” Our goal is to get a conversation started. If you give your friends and followers the opportunity to ask questions – you never know how many people you might reach! Share what you know about Ataxia and your experiences.
