Why Community Matters

When it comes to finding community, the ankylosing spondylitis warriors online have it on lock. From Instagram hashtags to Facebook support groups – and even our websites, AnkylosingSpondylitis.net and AxialSpondyloarthritis.net – there are so many places that you can connect with others who get it.

Our advocate, Jes, made a video for us a few months ago discussing the importance of finding community after an AS diagnosis. We were inspired by her message – and we have deemed March 2021 Community Month.

We encourage you to share in the comments below how you found community and why it is important to you, or maybe you could even talk about how you have not found your space yet. Sound off after you watch the video!
