WAD will be on 1st February 2021. This year we will be flooding social media with our selfie campaign and posters. Quotes will accompany the photos.
Contact has been made with all NHS Trusts and CCG’s in England with with a copy of our Patient Information Leaflet and 2 posters asking for them to be displayed on a board or in a GP surgery.
WAD will be on 27th February 2020 so it coincides with AAAM 2020 (9th Advances Against Aspergillosis and Mucormycosis) which will run from 27th till 29th February.
We have sent this poster out to medical, nursing, pharmacy and physiotherapy schools. PDF of the poster has been emailed to all the CCG’s in England. It has also been downloaded by people all over the world.
Our campaign this year will involve the above poster being displayed at King’s Cross tube station from Monday 24th February 2020 for 14 days. Pfizer Ltd funded this for Aspergillosis Trust.
