IAAM is one today!

Just wanted to wish a quick Happy Birthday to the International Autoimmune Arthritis Movement!  I think they’ve done a great job promoting wellness for autoimmune conditions.  🙂



World Autoimmune Arthritis Day (WAAD)

Good afternoon friends!

What a difference some rest can make.  I am feeling so much better this afternoon than I was this morning.  I’ve finally caught up on all the “non-essential to this week” email and have found quite a bit in there that I need to work on, this post being the first of a few things I need to get started on.

The ladies of  the International Autoimmune Arthritis Movement asked me to post about this: ” IAAM has established World Autoimmune Arthritis Day (WAAD), to be held annually on May 20th, online and during all time zones, making it a 47-hour online event. This Virtual Convention will unite patients, supporters and nonprofits from around the globe, inviting them to participate in both live and on-demand presentations, scheduled live chat sessions, surveys, live Call to Action posts and access to an online library of downloadable resources that can help them and their supporters in managing their diseases. Thus far, WAAD is registered on 16 health calendars internationally and has already received nonprofit support from over a dozen organizations, including the American College of Rheumatology, the Spondylitis Association of America, Arthritis New Zealand, the International Still’s Dis

ease Foundation and Lupus UK. As the official Host of this historic event, IAAM invites YOU to be a part of it too. Best of all? It’s FREE to register! Register at this link!

Back to me: I am going to be posting a few entries here in the next couple weeks, to be used in the future as part of the WAAD Resource Center.  Some topics we were asked to post on I’ve already covered here, so there will be a round-up post of some of those in the near future, with new posts possibly covering topics such as:

  1. Positive Outlook
  2. Awareness: The Invisible Disease
  3. Dry eyes/mouth/everything
  4. Dental Care
Look out for at least one of them as early as Monday, which is IAAM’s first birthday.  🙂
