Join others affected by ectodermal dysplasias worldwide in February to unite for Ectodermal Dysplasias Awareness Month. Help us raise awareness of these rare conditions. Our campaign is focused on awareness of the symptoms, its impact on teeth and the need for a law in the United States to get coverage for treatment.
28 Facts in 28 Days
Every day at 9 a.m., we will post a fact about ectodermal dysplasias on our Facebook and Twitter pages. We encourage you to share these on your own social media. Will you commit to the daily challenge? Use our hashtags #ectodermaldysplasia and #EDAM. Tag 10 friends to become a part of this community effort!
