Incorporated in New York State in 1985 as the National Addison's Disease Foundation, the name was later changed to National Adrenal Diseases Foundation to include individuals suffering from related diseases such as Cushing's Syndrome and Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia. Support groups began forming in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Illinois and now include groups in many other states. As a result of the dedication of the board of directors, officers and members of NADF, Addisonians now have a resource for their physical and mental health questions. The newly diagnosed can look to NADF for information from one of its "Facts You Need To Know" pamphlets. Anyone wishing to correspond with a fellow Addisonian or find understanding through participation in a support group need look no further than NADF. Even endocrinologists can stay informed through the efforts of the foundation.
