What is National D.R.E.S.S. Syndrome Day?
National D.R.E.S.S. Syndrome Day is celebrated each year on July 16. This is an opportunity for our national and international community of patients, loved-ones, physicians and researchers to come together and honor patients who have had suffered from DRESS and remember those who we have lost. It's also an amazing opportunity to continue educating the general public and medical community about this severe adverse, and potentially fatal drug reaction.
Here are some ways to get involved:
Spread the Word: Share information from our Quick Facts On DRESS sheet. Tell your friends, family, colleagues and especially your doctors, nurses, pharmacist, and anyone who interacts with patients!
Post why DRESS awareness matters to you. Share something about your own experience with DRESS or download one of our DRESS Awareness Matters signs. Fill it out and take a selfie with the sign, or a picture of the sign, and post on social media. Make sure to use the hashtags #NationalDRESSsyndromeday and #DRESSsyndrome and tag us @DRESSsyndromefoundation.
