FD/MAS Awareness Week 2021
February 20th-27th is FD/MAS Global Awareness Week.
FD/MAS Global Awareness Week is a coordinated international campaign to raise awareness of fibrous dysplasia and McCune-Albright syndrome (FD/MAS) and build support for public health and research that will improve the lives of FD/MAS patients. In 2021 we celebrate the second annual FD/MAS Global Awareness Week.
Finding Your Strength in 2021
It’s been a difficult and unpredictable year, but those of us in the FD/MAS community are used to pushing through difficult and unpredictable circumstances. It’s not just our 2020-2021 or our quarantine reality, it’s our normal. That’s why this year the FD/MAS Alliance is focusing FD/MAS Global Awareness Week on Finding Your Strength.
