The FDA wants to hear your story!

The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) is holding a public meeting on September 11, 2017 at their Campus in Silver Spring, Maryland to hear directly from you about what it's like to live with alopecia areata. This is a rare opportunity to talk about how the disease symptoms and current management options impact our community. There is no overstating the importance of this meeting, as the testimony you provide could directly affect treatment development for years to come. NAAF will be there and we hope to see you there as well!
