2017 sees the HMSA celebrate the 2nd UK Hypermobility Syndromes Awareness week #HMSAware

Are you #HMSAware?

Follow the HMSA’s website and social media for a look at the conditions the HMSA works with, their impact on the lives of those who have the disorders and how the HMSA helps by raising awareness and lobbying for change.

2017 is the second year the HMSA has run this event. Last year saw an Early Day Motion raised by our patron, Norman Lamb (MP). We were astonished at the support from so many MPs and has led to some excellent progress in awareness, not just among the general public and media, but also to services provided at local levels. This year we want to achieve a lot more, and we will need your help!

Each day, Monday to Friday, we will take highlight one condition, starting with Marfan Monday! Our HMSA Marfan Ambassador, Shona Cobb, will start events off publishing her article on our website. We’ll be monitoring discussion and questions using #HMSAware on all our social media platforms, from twitter and insta as well as on our Facebook page, and in our Facebook Members only groups, so to join in, just use the hashtag.
