Once, it was simply called MS Day at the Capitol but in the last couple of years, it has expanded to encompass 34 volunteer health organizations that cover a wide variety of diseases and re-titled, “Chronic Disease Awareness Day at the Capitol.”
From the Chronic Disease Collaborative (CCC) website:
