Alpha-1 Awareness Month

November is Alpha-1 Awareness Month and during this time, the Alpha-1 Foundation launches the #Alpha1Awareness campaign to increase awareness of Alpha-1 while also raising funds to find a cure and improve the lives of those affected by this rare disease. We encourage everyone – every Alpha, family member, caregiver, friend, healthcare professional and researcher – to participate! You can get involved by downloading our free Alpha-1 Awareness resources, such as the digital toolkit, sharing #Alpha1Awareness content on social media, and registering for upcoming events including the Virtual Walk 2021, 2021 Fall Virtual Alpha-1 Lobby Day , and the November Virtual Alpha-1 Education Day.

2021 Fall Virtual Alpha-1 Lobby Day - November 10th

The Alpha-1 Foundation invites you to participate in our 2021 Fall Virtual Alpha-1 Lobby Day on Wednesday, November 10, where we will meet with our elected officials to discuss the priorities of the Alpha-1 community.

A virtual lobby day allows the Alpha-1 Foundation to gather the community around the latest issues, and provides a channel to have your voice heard, highlight the priorities to both supporters and key lawmakers while taking action to make a difference. A Virtual Lobby Day is just as effective, and the bonus is that even more people can participate from the safety of their homes.
