ADVISORY BOARD APPROVED BROCHURES
PROVIDED & WRITTEN BY DNA Inc.
Dear All, because many of the movement disorder specialists will be in Europe in late September at the International Congress of Parkinson’s & Movement Disorders, we have changed the dates of the Dystonia Awareness Week on the government calendar from 20-27 September to 7-14 September 2019
Australian Dystonia Awareness Week 7th – 14th September 2019 Incl.
Dystonia Network of Australia Inc. (DNA) is pleased to announce our Dystonia Awareness Week on the Government Calendar for 2019 is 7th – 14th September inclusive. During this week we hope to hold Dystonia Information Days in at least 2 Tertiary Hospitals in Sydney and host a phone-in forum with a movement disorder specialist. We have also been given the opportunity to boost community awareness by advertising DNA and explaining Dystonia in community media in the lead up to Awareness Week. We will keep you informed of any other activities. Hopefully some members will also consider holding events in other areas and states to mark this week. We are aware that other groups follow the American dystonia awareness which is the whole of September and we are happy to support any events for members during this extended time. Stay tuned to our press release and news stories pages on our web site for updates. For more information about Dystonia go to dystonia.org.au or email us on email@example.com
