Help raise funds
AIU began as a grassroots group of patients and loved ones volunteering at fairs to raise awareness, meeting with reporters and attending EMS conferences. Since then, we’ve grown into a large network of people working together for the AI community. By raising funds for Adrenal Insufficiency United, you help fuel growth. Funds raised cover operating expenses, provide educational materials, and make collaboration possible. Our March 2018 conference in Kansas City Missouri is an example of what we can do when we work together! Thank you fund raisers for helping make the conference a success!
