Scoliosis Research Society (SRS)
An International Organization Dedicated to the Education, Research and Treatment of Spinal Deformity
Our Mission is to Foster Optimal Care for All Patients with Spinal Deformities
National Scoliosis Awareness Month takes place yearly in June with the goal of highlighting the growing need for education, early detection and awareness to the public about scoliosis and its prevalence within the community. The campaign also unites scoliosis patients, families, physicians, clinicians, institutions and related businesses in collaborative partnerships of local activities, events and grassroots networking throughout the month of June.
National Scoliosis Awareness Month Campaign Objectives:
Help Support the National Scoliosis Awareness Month Campaign
In preparing to publicize June as National Scoliosis Awareness Month, SRS will be sending requests to all US governors asking them to proclaim June as National Scoliosis Awareness Month. SRS would like to invite all scoliosis patients, family members and advocates to support SRS’s request for proclamations by sending in their own letters of support. Let your voice be heard in your state and take action to support those with spinal deformities.
Below please find a draft letter that can be used to get you started. You can then use the link to the National Governors Association (NGA) to find the name and contact information to send your letter to your state’s governor.
Thank you helping to support the National Scoliosis Awareness Month Campaign!
