This year, AARDA has reinvented our traditional Walk as a “Walkabout” at the VisTaTech Center on the campus of Schoolcraft College! We’ll have dozens of exhibitors, nonprofit partners and vendors with a focus on the health and wellness of autoimmune patients and families providing information, health screenings, demonstrations, chair massages, resources, samples and giveaways. We’ll also Walk! Our route will take us from inside the Center to a path around the Schoolcraft campus and back again. Teams and individuals can Walk as many times as they wish in support of family members, friends and others dealing with autoimmune disease.
Just across the hall in the Kerhl Auditorium, AARDA will present “What Every American Needs to Know about Autoimmune Disease.” This Public Forum includes noted speakers on a variety of autoimmune topics, such as “Women and Autoimmunity,” and “Coping with Autoimmune Disease.” A question-and-answer session will follow.
Funds raised will be directed to autoimmune patient education, support services and research.
