It’s World AS Day on Saturday 2 May. NASS use this day to raise awareness and understanding of ankylosing spondylitis. In a survey of NASS members we found that a third (33%) were rarely or never asked about what is important to them with their AS.
We want that to change so patients’ goals become the central part of rheumatology appointments. We are asking people to tweet a photo of themselves holding up a sign with their AS goals on the day.
Walk Your AS Off runs from 1 May 2015 to 31 May 2015 with the aim of helping people improve their AS and fitness through walking each day and raising awareness of AS among their friends and colleagues
