Dupuytren disease research has a big problem: lack of awareness. Most people have never heard the word “Dupuytren”, much less “Dupuytren Disease”. The name “Dupuytren” is hard to pronounce and even harder to spell. Many other medical conditions have had this problem. Most have still not made it out into public. It takes work, but it’s worth it.
Here is an approach which may help: push to establish a Dupuytren Disease Awareness Day in your state: KnowDup.com. Spread the word. Tell your friends, post on Facebook, Tweet, Instagram. Make it happen!
