Help Us to Raise Awareness for Dystonia en français

Join Dystonia Medical Research Foundation (DMRF) Canada to create awareness through the "Dystonia Moves Me" awareness campaign, taking place during the month of September 2018.  You can be one of thousands of volunteers across Canada and the U.S whose goal is to increase dystonia awareness and reach those who are undiagnosed.

Become A Dystonia Ambassador!  There are a number of ways for you to get involved. Here's How: 

  1. Promote Dystonia Awareness Through Social Media: Throughout the month of September, post, tweet, message, and promote dystonia awareness using #dystoniamovescanada #dystoniamovesme  #dystoniaawareneness to your networks. Click for DystoniaMovesMe logo
     
  2. Participate in the campaign by inviting local healthcare professionals to display dystonia awareness materials (Wallet cards, Brochures and Posters) in their waiting rooms. DMRF Canada will provide all of the materials required to get the word out. Please click here for a printable version of letter to Health care professionals.
