September 2020 marked the 5th Annual Rheumatic Disease Awareness Month (RDAM), a national awareness event sponsored by the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) and its public awareness campaign, Simple Tasks™. RDAM was created to raise awareness of the 100+ conditions under the umbrella of rheumatic disease. The theme for 2020 RDAM focused on amplifying the voices and experiences of people living with rheumatic disease to facilitate better public understanding of what it’s like to live with one of these diseases.
