Rheumatoid Awareness Day Highlights

Rheumatoid Awareness Day Highlights

By Dana Symons

The first ever Rheumatoid Awareness Day was held just a few weeks ago, on February 2nd.  Thousands of patients banded together for this momentous occasion, and we want to highlight a few of the things that were accomplished as a result.  Components of our Rheumatoid Awareness Day campaign included two press releases, a Facebook Event, awareness resources to share via social media, a Facebook chat, a Twitter chat and a matching donation opportunity, thanks to Crescendo Bioscience.  Many people also took the initiative to celebrate in their own way by organizing local patient meetups, sporting our indigo and gold colors, meeting with their local government representatives to get an official declaration for Rheumatoid Awareness Day, and more!  Susan Cabral also donated a song, with all future proceeds being donated to RPF.

Check out these stats to give you an idea of what our involvement and reach was:

Thanks to all who helped make the first Rheumatoid Awareness Day such a success!
