Held Across Canada Each May
Hemochromatosis Awareness Month is held the month of May of each year.
During Awareness Month, the Society print packages and electronic information for distribution to a country-wide network of regional contacts / volunteers.
Awareness Month volunteers concentrate their efforts during this month by setting up information booths in malls, hospitals, pharmacies and blood donor clinics.
We also schedule interviews with local radio, television and newspapers to drive people to the CHS website or to contact the CHS office, where they can access hemochromatosis information packages.
