MDC’s Freedom Tower Goes Teal for Scleroderma Awareness Month

Miami, June 16, 2022 – Miami Dade College (MDC) will illuminate its Historic Landmark Freedom Tower teal for Scleroderma Awareness Month on Wednesday, June 29, at sunset in support of the National Scleroderma Foundation.

More than 300,000 Americans live with some type of scleroderma. Today, the face of scleroderma includes people of all ages, genders, and backgrounds. Scleroderma can affect young parents, children, grandparents, and teenagers. One of the most challenging things about scleroderma is that it shows up differently in each person. It’s more complicated to manage since there is not one clear path.
