World Autoimmune Arthritis Day

March 27, 2017

Event Date: 
Saturday, 20 May 2017 (All day)

World Autoimmune Arthritis Day was established by the International Foundation for Autoimmune Arthritis in 2012, officially falling on May 20th, and is currently listed on over 2 dozen health calendars internationally. The event unites over 6 dozen nonprofits, advocates, and experts from around the world to provide educational and awareness information to patients, their supporters, and the general public. 

Until this year, WAAD has been run in the form of an online convention, with virtual booths, live presentations , and various activities for both patients and supporters. However, this year we have developed this exciting and completely interactive ‘race’ that has the potential to engage over 100,000 patients over 6 days, which should set a record for any single event ever held in the autoimmune arthritis community. Like previous years, it will provide patients and supporters with nonprofit resources and education, access to live chats/presentations, the ability to communicate with others around the world, and participate in live awareness promotions. Same result, different virtual creation.
