After years of involvement with groups targeted specifically for Primary Immunodeficiency (PI), Lauren Dunlap and Dr. Maeve O’Connor decided to branch out to include all immunodeficiencies and dysregulation diseases. PI patients are also at risk for autoimmune diseases so this was the logical next step.
” There is no one group that is solely dedicated to all the different types of immune disorders and there has also never been a nonprofit founded by a doctor and patient team. That makes AAIDA very unique in several ways ” — Dr. O’Connor
The pair had so much success in founding and creating the Primary Immunodeficiency Walk in Charlotte for two years that it was only natural for them to expand this success to include a larger patient population affected by immune disorders.Learn More
AAIDA exists to advocate for patients living with Primary Immunodeficiency (PI), Secondary Immunodeficiency and Autoimmune Diseases, to create awareness and conduct research to find cures for these different groups of diseases.Learn More
