The 1st December saw the launch of our ‘Addison’s Advent’ calendar on our Instagram page. For the first 12 days of December, we shared expert, trusted advice and information about Addison’s and Adrenal Insufficiency with our followers.

Before the event, we shared polls on both our Instagram and Facebook stories. We wanted to find out what sort of information would be of interest to our followers. From sick day rules to exercise and travel advice, you shared what really matters to you about managing your adrenal insufficiency. So, thank you!
