We want to remind you of our invitation for you to join the FDAAA VIRTUAL ANNUAL MEETING on Wednesday, May 6, 2020, from 3 PM to 4 PM.

At that meeting, we will announce our new Board of Directors and Officers. We will also share our accomplishments for the year and ask for your input.

If you are interested in participating, please send an e-mail to mail@fdaaa.org, and we will send the instructions to join the virtual meeting.

We hope that you can join us!

Be well and see you on May 6,

Update for the COVID-19 Crisis

We want to provide additional information regarding the COVID-19 crisis.

We hope this information is helpful to you and that you and your families and loved ones are staying safe.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created challenges in our everyday lives. As we each do our part to help slow the spread of coronavirus disease, we look to the helpers all around us and wonder if we, too, could do more.

Here are some ways you and your family can help.

We also want to point out FDA's encouragement for people to donate blood. Not only will you feel good about your participation, you will be helping others in the process. Also, if you send us a picture (at mail@fdaaa.org) of yourself donating blood, we will post it on the FDAAA website!
