Alpha-1 Awareness Month

November is Alpha-1 Awareness Month, a 30-day initiative that encourages the Alpha-1 community to share stories and resources and raise funds to support the search for a cure.

This year’s theme is “The Power to Connect,” highlighting the importance of connecting with your fellow Alphas through Alpha-1 Support Groups, Alpha-1 specialists in Clinical Resource Centers, legislatures on Capitol Hill, and your local community to raise #Alpha1Awareness.

Whether you post on social media, fundraise for the 2024 Alpha-1 Foundation Virtual Walk, or sign up for the Alpha-1 Research Registry, you have the power to make a difference.
