Group Meeting

Birdshot Day

In 2019, Christine Griffith 

hosted a Birdshot Day in Philadelphia. It was an amazing gathering of birdies, medical professionals and tech reps, and afterwards, several birdies were inspired enough to establish BUSNA!


We hope that, when Covid-19 calms down, we'll meet for another day of educational forums and comradery. This year we'll host a few virtual educational events. Fingers crossed for an in-person Birdshot Day in 2023! 


Spring Fundraiser

In 2021 BUSNA held a 'Spring into Bloom Auction' to support Birdshot research. This year, 2022, we celebrated our 2nd Anniversary with a unique fundraiser.


For every $20. contributed, donors received a BUSNA Birthday Calendar featuring beautiful photographs taken by "birdies". 

Thank you for your support. Each donation is greatly appreciated!
