Promoting public awareness of dystonia is one of the most important aspects of the DMRF Canada's mission. In addition to improving society’s recognition and understanding of dystonia, increased awareness directly impacts our ability to fundraise for research and identify people and families who need our help.
There are many ways in which you can create awareness:
Distribute our What Is Dystonia brochures to friends, acquaintenances, local doctors and hospitals. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to order brochures
Participate in Dystonia June Awareness week activities. Dystonia Awareness week is celebrated the first week in June. Contact your local support group for details.
Set up awareness booths at local fairs, schools, shopping malls and stores. Contact us to find out how.
Contact local radio, newspaper or television outlets to encourage them to promote dystonia in a special news piece.
