ARRC is grateful to the NIB Foundation for the opportunity to develop resources to support young people diagnosed with a variety of autoimmune illnesses. The Young Autoimmune Persons Education Program has engaged with the community and clinicians to develop a series of resources based upon feedback.
As a result of directly posted surveys, telephone communication and event booth communication, a series of colourful brochures have been completed as well as plans for new social groups to aide support.
ARRC has been working with a very talented young person Morgan Williams from Griphon Graphics in graphic design to create some unique brochure images using the theme of Australian animals with the emu as a central character. The emu image has a general message "no one is im'emu'une to autoimmunity" which draws attention to the prevalence of Autoimmunity.
