AIU takes in about 50,000 per year which qualifies us as a small nonprofit.  However, thanks to our dedicated board members and volunteers we are able to accomplish a great deal.  Just imagine what we could do with more.

Where does the money go you may ask?  Take a look at our graphic.




Clinical trials offer the opportunity for the patient experience to be counted. At any given time, there are trials about to recruit, or actively looking for participants. This U.S. government site allows you to search around the world. You can enter your condition and country for a list of what’s available.

Two of our sessions from last year’s conference are offered here to all thanks to Off Lease K9 Training (operating in several cities) and the Canadian Addison’s Society CAS. View our EMS/School Nurse training here.


Thank you for supporting our mission! Together we can change the world!
