Join the “virtual” race to increase public awareness of autoimmune arthritis
May 20 is World Autoimmune Arthritis Day (WAAD). The International Foundation for Autoimmune Arthritis established this commemorative date back in 2012. The virtual event unites dozens of nonprofits, advocates, and experts from around the world to provide educational and awareness information to patients, their supporters, and the general public.
Participants and partner organizations will participate in a virtual global race where they will visit social media and organizational websites and resources. WAAD is hosted on May 20th for the duration of all Time Zones (May 19th 6am EST – May 21st 5am EST). You can participate online on Facebook and Twitter and follow the event’s hashtag #WAAD17.
