Ectodermal Dysplasia Awareness Month – February 2022

Happy Ectodermal Dysplasia Awareness Month.

Poster

Each year, we ask our ED community to unite with others affected by Ectodermal Dysplasia to help us raise awareness of this rare condition.

Ectodermal Dysplasia Awareness Month is celebrated globally during February. The more of us who join together….. the bigger impact we can make.

More than 180 different types of Ectodermal Dysplasia have been identified.

No matter the time of year, you can help spread the word about Ectodermal Dysplasia and join us in raising awareness for our incredible community through support, research, fundraising, volunteering and more.
