Mark your calendar. International Ataxia Awareness Day (IAAD) will be observed on Monday, September 25, 2017. IAAD is an effort from Ataxia organizations and individuals around the world to spread awareness about the disease and inspire action towards a cure.
The awareness campaign slogan is “Stumble Onto Ataxia.” This year’s awareness theme will be Ataxia symptoms. To celebrate IAAD, information will be shared about Ataxia symptoms and how they impact a person’s life.
Individuals, government, and partner organizations are encouraged to help to spread the word about Ataxia. An IAAD Awareness Campaign Toolkit will be a help to plan your own event, social media campaign, and/or fundraiser.
