National Osteogenesis Imperfecta Awareness Week
is scheduled around Wishbone Day (an international OI Awareness Day on May 6th). During Awareness Week, we encourage the OI community, Foundation, and supporters to use fundraising events, social media, and individual state proclamations to raise awareness for osteogenesis imperfecta.

To prepare for National OI Awareness Week, OI community members submitted requests to their state government to proclaim May 6-13, 2017 as National OI Awareness Week. We are so thankful for the OI community members who requested proclamations and the officials of the 16 states, 2 cities, 2 counties and 1 town that recognized May 6-13, 2017 as National OI Awareness Week! To view all of the National OI Awareness Week proclamations, visit

Raising OI awareness in your community is important year-round! To raise awareness by planning an event or holding a Blue Jeans for Better Bones Day in your office or school, visit or contact Samantha at or 301-947-0083.
