The National Scoliosis Foundation (NSF) welcomes you to explore this website to learn about the Scoliosis Awareness Month project and stay updated on the related activities and events. We encourage you to be informed, and we urge you to join us in this important activity.
We have provided a number of different resources which are accessible through the sidebar on the left of this webpage. These resources include "Catch the Curve" ,  a scoliosis video for young people, as a well as a comprehensive Scoliosis Media & Community Guide. These materials are helpful  for patients and professionals interested in reaching out to others in their community and generating awareness about scoliosis.
As you will see in the About Awareness Month section, June is the center of a year long effort, and an important focal point to invite all members of the scoliosis community to come together in a united campaign. We invite you to send in your institution, organization, or business logo to post on our Wall of Supporters
We are very excited this year. Thanks to our partner, the Scoliosis Research Society, we are getting very close to our goal of receiving proclamations in every State for National Scoliosis Awareness Month.  We thank everyone who shared their time, talent and treasure with us throughout the years to make this possible.

Together we truly Make a Difference!
