World Autoimmune Arthritis Day

World Autoimmune Arthritis Day is aimed to bring global  awareness while learning more about your disease and ways to manage it best.  WAAD will begin when the 1st world time zone strikes midnight and will end when the last world time zone strikes midnight of the 21st.

We encourage all people to "Differentiate Your Arthritis".  This is our major international campaign launched for World Autoimmune Arthritis Day 2012:

Differentiate Your Arthritis
Don't rename it, reclaim it.
Define it and differentiate from the norm.
Then they'll understand.

“What is the WAAD Event?”

The WAAD event will be an online Virtual Convention, comprised of mainly one, online location. However, you will also find sponsors and nonprofit information on this website and the Facebook Page.
Also every six (6) hours you can participate in LIVE Call to Action announcements, posted on both Facebook and Twitter, that will provide directions for raising immediate public awareness with the rest of the world!
