Newswise — The Vasculitis Foundation (VF) has launched its 2016 Vasculitis Awareness video. Every year, the VF produces a short video that is tied closely to the VF's goal of raising awareness about this rare, autoimmune disease.

About the Vasculitis FoundationSince 1986, the Vasculitis Foundation has empowered patients through disease education, raising awareness of vasculitis in the general public and medical community, and funding research to determine the cause, develop more effective treatments, and discover a cure. The VF is committed to improving the lives of current and future patients and is positioned as the definitive resource for patients, family members, medical professionals and researchers seeking information about vasculitis.For information about vasculitis and the Vasculitis Foundation please visit
