NOAH Connections

NOAH Connections, bringing the albinism community together.

Introducing NOAH Connections

Inspired by our early pandemic “Social Distancing with Friends” series, as well as the heart-warming connections created during #VirtualNOAHCon2020, NOAH is delighted to introduce NOAH Connections, an ongoing series of virtual opportunities to bring the community together. An essential part of NOAH’s mission is to “provide a place where people with albinism and their families in the U.S. and Canada can find acceptance, support, and fellowship.” With the participation and engagement of community members like you, NOAH Connections will provide this opportunity for virtual “face to face” connections. Unless otherwise stated, NOAH Connections will be hosted on the Zoom platform.

“Aging with Albinism” is an opportunity to connect with others, to share, to renew old friendships, to celebrate, and to acknowledge how albinism continues to be an integral part of our lives.

“A topic that has been intriguing me is heredity. I wonder if many people have been able to trace anyone else in their family from whom they could have inherited albinism.” – June
