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. 

Awareness Week 2019 reach

To prepare for National OI Awareness Week, OI community members submitted requests to their state government to proclaim May 4-11, 2019 as National OI Awareness Week. We are so thankful for the OI community members who requested proclamations and the officials of the 16 states that recognized May 4-11, 2019 as National OI Awareness Week!

During Wishbone Day, the OI Foundation shared #SHAREforAWARENESS posts throughout the day - we reached more than 100,000 people! To view the #SHAREforAWARENESS Wishbone Day posts, click here!

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 Melissa at or 301-947-0083.
