Get Involved in SAA’s “Think Spondylitis” Awareness Campaign!

By Spondylitis Association of America

Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Have you ever met a doctor who was uninformed about spondylitis?

Far too many people have. The average spondylitis patient will wait almost a decade to be diagnosed. That means years of unexplained pain and limitations, as well as years of missed treatment.

In honor of Spondylitis Awareness Month, and World AS Day, send a message to rheumatologists, primary care physicians, and anyone else in the medical community who should know more about spondylitis.

Send SAA’s free Think Spondylitis postcards to physicians in your community this World AS Day!

Get Your “Think Spondylitis” Postcards

How It Works

  1. Request SAA’s “Think Spondylitis” Postcards free of charge.
  2. Personalize them by adding your name, your city and state, how long it took you to get diagnosed with spondylitis, and anything else you’d like physicians to know.
  3. Take a picture of the postcards you are mailing out, and share them with us! Post to our Facebook page, share on Twitter tagging us, or email them to us.
  4. Then mail them out to physicians you’d like to reach.

These “Think Spondylitis” postcards are available free of charge until World AS Day, offer a brief overview of the signs and symptoms that can help lead to earlier diagnosis, and provide links to more information.

Campaign started in 2018. Join in asking the medical community to #ThinkSpondylitis!
