Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a painful & disabling arthritis. It is plagued by a diagnostic delay of 5-6 years & consequent disability. As a rheumatologist, I realized that half the suffering in AS can be prevented by reducing this diagnostic delay by raising awareness about AS & by empowering AS warriors with the right information. That is how StandForAS was born. We raise awareness physically as well as digitally. StandForAS FB page has been spreading awareness for almost 2 years. We now have a new video every week since February to discuss various medical issues related to AS. I aim to empower warriors with correct medical information & help them achieve conquest over AS.
