Check out all the ways can help to raise awareness of axial SpA (AS)
At your local hospital
Your local hospital is the ideal place to raise awareness of axial SpA (AS) and NASS among healthcare professionals,the general public, and others living with condition.
You can ask your local hospital if you could have a stand to raise awareness of axial SpA (AS) and we can provide everything you need. You’ll find lots of people come for a chat. They will want to pick up our information and hear your experiences.
Do ask a member of your healthcare team if you can have the stand in their clinic, that way you are really targeting the right people.
What will NASS provide?

Leaflets on ASone and Your AS Journey
Balloons (if they are allowed)
Via your MP, MSP, AS or MLA
A great way of raising awareness and understanding of axial SpA (AS) is to talk to your local parliamentary representative. As health is devolved, it is better to write to your AS, MSP or MLA if you don’t live in England.
