Post by: quietdynamics on March 28, 2013, 02:47:04 PM
 AARDA Launches "My Autoimmune Story" Video Series
Released: 3/27/2013 7:00 PM EDT
Source Newsroom: American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association (AARDA)   www.aarda.org.


"Part of AARDA’s 2013 March is National Autoimmune Awareness Month activities, the goal of the new series is to give the 50 million Americans afflicted with autoimmune disease (AD), as well as their families and friends, a national voice and platform to share their personal story...

AARDA hopes by collecting and featuring these short videos, it will help educate people about the widespread impact of ADs, the difficulties in getting a diagnosis, the family or genetic component and the financial and emotional burden of living with these chronic illnesses.

AARDA is asking Americans who have been affected by AD – patients, families and friends -- to post a video response to Martin’s video, sharing their autoimmune story in a 1-3 minute video vignette (www.youtube.com/aardatube).
