Autoimmune Walk

Autoimmune Walk The AARDA Autoimmune Walk brings a national focus to autoimmune diseases; raises funds for critical research; and provides hope to 50 million sufferers.
(22)

AARDA is the only national charity dedicated to bringing a national focus to autoimmunity, the major cause of serious chronic diseases. Approximately 50 million Americans, 20 percent of the population or one in five people, suffer from autoimmune diseases. Women are more likely than men to be affected; some estimates say that 75 percent of those affected — some 30 million people — are women. Still, with these statistics, autoimmunity is rarely discussed as a women’s health issue; and basic autoimmune research is significantly underfunded. AARDA has launched the Autoimmune Walk to change all this. When we link together, we are stronger. WHEN WE LINK TOGETHER, A CURE IS CLOSER!

Mission: Founded in 1991, the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association (AARDA) is dedicated to the eradication of autoimmune diseases and the alleviation of suffering and the socioeconomic impact of autoimmunity through initiating, fostering and facilitating collaboration in the areas of education, public awareness, research and patient services in an effective, ethical and efficient manner. The Autoimmune Walk was launched in 2012 to help build awareness nationwide.

International Foundation for Autoimmune & Autoinflammatory Arthritis

Remember when doctor visits weren't mostly virtual - so you didn't have to worry about when to schedule your next visit? You just did it before leaving. But what is the protocol now? Last time you did an e-visit with your doctor, did they schedule you another visit at the end? Tell you to call the office or that a staff person would contact you? What's the protocol?

We ask because it's come to our attention (as people living with these diseases), that some of our rheumy offices are now reaching out to get us on the calendar for another visit. OOPS!

So if you have visited with one of your doctors, and that visit usually requires a follow-up over the course of a few months, make sure your next visit is on the books!
