Ready for Dystonia Awareness Month?

8/23/16

Campaigns and events are happening across the country to bring greater visibility to dystonia. Join us!

September is Dystonia Awareness Month. We know many of you are preparing to participate in dystonia awareness activities. We want to express our appreciation to everyone who is working to increase awareness of dystonia. Your efforts today will make a difference for the entire community, and we are grateful to you.

Here are a list of efforts supported by the DMRF.


Dystonia Moves Me: Reaching the Undiagnosed

Right now, how many people do you think are struggling with dystonia but not yet diagnosed? You can help get the word out about dystonia by joining Dystonia Moves Me, DMRF's annual awareness campaign. The DMRF is calling on volunteers to ask local healthcare offices and businesses across the USA to provide dystonia awareness materials in their waiting rooms. The DMRF makes it easy for you to invite healthcare practices to request awareness materials for their offices.

To get started, order your free Dystonia Moves Me Volunteer Kit online at www.dystonia-foundation.org/DMM-kit. For highlights from the campaign throughout the month, go to: www.dystonia-foundation.org/dystonia-moves-me.

By taking part in the Dystonia Moves Me campaign you can enter a random drawing for a $100 gift card. To be included in the drawing, submit photos and images of your awareness efforts to the DMRF at www.dystonia-foundation.org/DMM_2017. Or post photos and videos with hashtag #DystoniaMovesMe on the DMRF’s Facebook wall and on Twitter (@dmrf).
