September is a great time for our annual SADS Awareness
Month as most parents and kids are getting back into the school swing
of things. This year our goal is a SADS safe school for all kids with
SADS conditions. To do this, we need your help! By utilizing our new
School Checklist and our materials, you can make your school a SADS
safe school. Along with this goal we are encouraging parents and volunteers to expand their influence to include
after-school sports and activities, their local community and
recreation centers and emergency rooms in the area.
This is a great time to get involved. SADS will be sending
regular emails and enews updates to keep you informed during the month
of September and to let you know how you can continue to spread
awareness about SADS conditions and potentially save a life!
Volunteer Now for SADS Awareness Month 2008!
Goals for 2008 SADS Awareness Month
- Continue to promote
safe schools for kids with SADS conditions (expand
your efforts to include any after-school activities your child is
involved in if your school is already a SADS safe school).

- Partner with State and
regional school nurse organizations and other nonprofit
organizations to implement SADS awareness strategies
- Provide information
that will enable SADS family members to contact their local media
and tell their stories.
