for Invisible Illness and Disability Awareness – Saturday May 25, 2019

The RCD is supporting the International Awareness Day for Invisible Illnesses in May 2019, by hosting a special event - Shining a Light Event on Saturday May 25, 2019 to promote collaboration, connection, networking and knowledge exchange. These are some of the key factors that can be employed when facing different stages of invisible illness & disability. 

Most people diagnosed with an invisible illness or disability such as chronic pain, arthritis, mental illness or post-traumatic stress disorder will experience many stages of different conditions. The “Shining a Light” event will provide participants with functional “hands on” tools that are readily usable in their daily life.

WHY: Our goal is to help create awareness of invisible illnesses and disabilities with friends, family, co-workers and the community at large, by focusing on mind, body and spirit experience, through the provision of resources, tools, support and sharing.

WHEN: May 25, 2019, Saturday, 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. come at your convenience

WHERE:  Richmond Centre for Disability RCD (Unit 842, 5300 No. 3 Road, Lansdowne Centre, Richmond, BC)
