October is National Dwarfism Awareness Month

Help us spread positive information about dwarfism!  LPA challenges our membership to reach out to local schools, businesses, and organizations during the month of October and raise positive awareness about dwarfism. Our goal is to reach 10,000 people during the month. We will also have a daily posts about Dwarfism Awareness on our Facebook page, including LPA member photos and fun facts and a cool Teen Instagram program .
