October is Dwarfism Awareness Month

October has been declared National Dwarfism Awareness Month by Little People of America (LPA), a national support organization for people with dwarfism and their families.  LPA provides peer, parent and medical support, education, scholarships, and community outreach for the dwarfism community and is dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with dwarfism throughout their lives while celebrating with great pride Little People’s contribution to social diversity.  In declaring Dwarfism Awareness Month, LPA hopes to raise positive awareness around dwarfism, address common misconceptions, and increase opportunities for people with dwarfism around the country.
