March is SUDC Awareness Month!

The SUDC Foundation is once again leading efforts to raise awareness of SUDC around the world.  

Please see below for a full list of activities and ways you can get involved or click here to download our SUDC Awareness Month 2020 poster.

In conjunction with the below activities, we have asked each U.S. State to proclaim March as SUDC Awareness Month. Last year, 43 U.S. States joined us. This year we are shooting for all 50!  Follow the action here.
