Coincidently with the launch of my website, September is Rheumatic Disease Awareness month…so here we are supporting it.
In a year some set months are dedicated to provide recognition and propagation of awareness of different diseases.
The purpose of Rheumatic Disease Awareness Month
RDAM was launched just last year by the American College of Rheumatology (ACR), the leading association representing rheumatologists and rheumatology healthcare professionals, and their public awareness campaigns.
We at RA+ve support the intent of this awareness campaign which is to improve the public’s understanding of rheumatic diseases, like RA and others, and to advance the health and wellbeing of the millions of living with these diseases in the world.
The theme of RDAM is “Hundreds of Diseases, One Voice.” This encourages us to work together, speak as one voice, and to help educate the public about the realities of rheumatic diseases and what it’s like to live with one.
This month lets support this awareness. So what can you do to help promote awareness during September? For starters, share this article with your friends and family.
If we truly act as one voice, we can encourage more understanding and compassion for people living with rheumatic diseases – which will improve the lives of millions just like us.
