Alpha-1 Awareness Month

November is Alpha-1 Awareness Month—30 days of awareness-focused initiatives, inviting the Alpha-1 community to share stories and resources while raising funds to support the fight for a cure. 

This year’s theme is “Make Your Move for Alpha-1.” Small decisions can make a big impact. Whether your move is posting about Alpha-1 on social media, creating a team and fundraising for the Alpha-1 Virtual Walk or signing up for the Alpha-1 Research Registry to help move research forward – it makes an impact on the Alpha-1 community. 

By joining us during #Alpha1Awareness month in November, you can take part in our mission and “Make Your Move for Alpha-1.” The Foundation is advocating for the entire Alpha-1 community including patients, caregivers, researchers, clinicians, partners, industry, and government, to be involved to achieve our mission of finding a cure. How will you “Make Your Move for Alpha-1?”
