IDA has been involved in the NICIAW since its inception in 2002. We have sponsored and helped get the word out. We have also participated in the online seminars by giving presentations on “But You LOOK Good,” “How Can I Make People Understand” and “What to Say, What Not to Say and How to Help.”
In 2010, Wayne and Sherri were Guest Speakers for a podcast interview, “Invisible disabilities and the Husband as Caregiver” that was broadcast live. In 2011, it was featured again during the week’s events.
Also in 2010, Wayne shared tips that were adapted from IDA’s book, But You LOOK Good! and published into a collaborative project. NICIAW Founder and Author, Lisa Copen compiled a helpful, 80 page ebook, Chronic Illness Tips: 263 ways to more than “just get by.” This book is available to download for FREE!
National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week is an official annual campaign sponsored by Rest Ministries in collaboration with other sponsors. This year, the NICIAW will provide both audio and video seminars, handouts, articles, blogs, posters and more!
