International Angelman Day occurs annually on FEBRUARY 15TH.
This date was chosen by a collective of global Angelman Organisations – to coincide with International Rare Disease Month which is recognised throughout the world annually in February, with the specific date chosen as the 15th to tie in with Chromosome 15.
The purpose of this day is to:
1. Raise awareness worldwide of the condition
2. Mobilise people to action & encourage fundraising for the individual organisation in their country
3. Promote research and educational resources in your country.
4. Remember those people with Angelman Syndrome who are no longer with us.
