Promote Dystonia Awareness
You can promote dystonia awareness by joining Dystonia Moves Me, the DMRF’s annual awareness campaign. Dystonia Moves Me empowers volunteers to promote dystonia awareness locally and in social media. September is Dystonia Awareness Month, but promoting awareness is crucial year round.
There are several ways to take action for dystonia awareness.
Ways to take action for dystonia awareness:
Join us for a nationwide virtual Dystonia Zoo Day to unite DMRF supporters across the country and their friends and families, raise awareness of dystonia, and raise funds to support the DMRF. Hosting the event virtually ensures the safety of our supporters and provides the opportunity for greater cross-country reach and more opportunities for participation than existed through local zoo events.
DMRF events and educational meetings happen throughout the country each year.
Read up on dystonia so you are prepared to educate family and friends.
