National Organization for Albinism and Hypopigmentation
We understand that many people will visit our site for a variety of reasons. There will be people with albinism who come to gain knowledge, share knowledge and make connections. There will be parents of children with albinism who come for accurate information, advice and support. There will be students who are doing research. There will be people from the medical and education fields who want to provide better care by learning more than books can provide about this genetic condition. And there will be people who have heard the word “albino” and want to know more.
Our goal is to provide a comfortable and respectful place for everyone who has found their way here.
On the left, you’ll find information categorized by the types of people visiting the site. At the top of the page, you’ll find information about our organization.
Enjoy your stay here, and come back often.
