How to get involved

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.
