Watch & Learn

NAAF has a wide variety of resources to increase awareness and understanding of alopecia areata, including educational webinars, patient videos and inspiring community voices. We hope these videos, webinars and stories not only leave you better informed but empowered as well.

Alopecia Areata Patient Videos

We can always learn and gain confidence from those who have shared similar experiences to our own. These videos feature a diverse group of alopecia areata community members sharing their life’s highs and lows, and their advice to others who are also going through journeys not unlike their own.

Community Voices

If there was one thing you could tell your friends about alopecia areata, what would it be?  What’s one thing you would like to tell your dermatologist, parents, co-workers, or classmates? NAAF asked our community these very questions and we hope you’ll find these patient perspectives both candid and informative. And if you’re an alopecia areata patient, you may find your experience is similar to that of the patients featured here. Learn how you can share your voice.


NAAF is pleased to offer free webinars in the You Are Not Alone: Education and Empowerment Webinar Series. We recognize the crucial need for the patient community to interact with medical professionals and experts with experience on topics specific to alopecia areata. These webinars cover a variety of relevant topics presented by a diverse set of speakers that will empower and educate community members wherever they are on their journey with alopecia areata.

NAAF gratefully acknowledges the support provided for the You Are Not Alone: Education and Empowerment Webinar Series from our partners.
