We are looking forward to our second International Paget’s Awareness Day, on the 11th of January 2020. We want to create a day of activity around the world dedicated to raising awareness of Paget’s disease.
Tune in on the 11th of January
Focusing on the multi-disciplinary Paget’s research at Norton Priory in Runcorn, Cheshire, which has already attracted international interest, this year’s theme is ‘Ancient and Modern Paget’s Disease’. On the 11th January we will be releasing a video filmed at Norton Priory, where we interviewed researchers and clinicians regarding the exciting research into medieval skeletons. This research could change the way conditions, including Paget’s disease, can be traced through history and therefore open opportunities to change the way we research diseases in the future. The video will be available to view on our website (go to the home page on the 11th January) and will be shared via social media.
How You Can Make a Difference…

Bringing Paget’s Back into the Spotlight
We have been looking back at our history as an Association, and how things have evolved from our roots, in the home of founder Ann Stansfield, in Manchester in 1973. Ann’s determination to raise awareness of Paget’s disease, at a time when little was widely known about the condition is what helped to bring Paget’s disease into the public eye, leading to people being diagnosed and treated for the condition. Ann’s kindness and dedication offered support to people with the condition and is the foundation of our Association. We aim to continue Ann’s hard work in spreading awareness of Paget’s disease and helping to bring relief to those affected by the condition in the future. We want Paget’s Awareness Day to educate professionals, and the public about Paget’s, and how it can affect those with the condition. We also want those who are concerned about Paget’s disease to know that they are not alone, and that support is available. We would encourage our members to be a part of this special Paget’s Day and request your help to make a difference.
