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 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.

I know Karen has been on top of things to bring new information to the members about resources and research that is pertinent to the group. She is very trustworthy and caring for all the members.
