Business Cards...

I often find myself explaining acromegaly to people, and I want to help them remember what it is so that they can explain it to others and increase awareness of the disease.  I went online to a website that offers free business cards, and created this mock-up of a little card I'd like make.

I figure I can hand them out to people I talk to, they can look up "acromegaly" online later on or they can pass it along to a friend.  I think it might be useful to share these with people who are in a position to identify people who might be affected as well- people who work with people's hands, feet, skin, teeth, or faces.

What information would you put on an "Acromegaly Awareness" card?

Wow Ellen! This is great! You are so awesome. Would you mind if I used that on the back side of the Acromegaly Community business cards?

Glad you like it! Please feel free to use it- we should all spread this information as widely as possible!

This IS an excellent idea. I was just telling the Mister yesterday that I want to make up some business cards for Tanya to hand out to those who stare at her; something like, "Since I have your attention..." on one side and an English/Spanish Acro info on the other side (with the website on the bottom). Good idea Ellen!

I went ahead and ordered some of these cards (after correcting the typo in the second line).

If anyone wants some, I'll have enough to share!
