The American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association is dedicated to the eradication of autoimmune diseases and the alleviation of suffering and the socioeconomic impact of autoimmunity through fostering and facilitating collaboration in the areas of education, public awareness, research, and patient services in an effective, ethical and efficient manner.


AARDA has achieved many important advances in the cause of collaboration in the research, diagnosis, treatment and sharing of information about autoimmunity. AARDA hosts national programs for patient education and the organization of scientific symposia. A key objective is to establish multidisciplinary diagnostic triage clinics at NIH funded Centers of Excellence. These clinics will help eliminate one of the biggest obstacles patients face -- lack of early diagnosis. AARDA affected legislation to establish an autoimmune coordinating committee at NIH and is actively working toward the passage of a bill for prevention and awareness of autoimmune diseases.

I am the group support leader to AARDA's Support Meetings at 16151 19 Mile Rd & Hayes, Clinton Twp, Mich, 48038-Henry Ford Medical Pavilion-4th floor. Bringing national and community awareness to others is what we try to do in our group as there are over 100 autoimmune related diseases that are often misdaignosed or go undiagnosed before they are treated. By then its often too late.
Diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, Scleroderma, Sjogrens, Myositis, Diabetes, Celiacs, Fibromyalgia, R.A., Psoriasis, Crohn's , Thyroiditis Hashimotos and more!!
Our support group has professional speakers of all professions, including , Immunology, Rheumotology, Neurology, Other Foundations, Social Security Attorneys, Dieticians and more! Our meetings are free and we take pride in helping new members who suffer from these devastating debilitating diseases. We want you to know that together we can connect the links to these chronic diseases. Please join us!
