Autoimmune Disease Awareness Month (ADAM) takes place in March and to mark the annual event, the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association, Inc. (AARDA) is encouraging national and local media attention through various activities. For the month of March, AARDA will distribute various messages, graphics, and stories highlighting facts, stats, information and people who are living with various autoimmune diseases. AARDA is also encouraging users to post a graphic with a gradient color scheme that helps raise curiosity and awareness for autoimmune disease. There is also a component of this campaign where users will paint their nails or hands to represent their identity with autoimmune disease, whether personally or representing a loved one. AARDA is the nation’s only non-profit organization dedicated to bringing a national focus to autoimmunity as a category of disease and promoting a collaborative research effort in order to find better treatments and a cure for all autoimmune diseases.
