Autoimmune Disease affects more than 50 million Americans according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and that number is rising. Researchers have identified 80-100 different autoimmune diseases and suspect at least 40 additional diseases of having an autoimmune basis. These chronic diseases affect the immune system's ability to recognize foreign cells, so it attacks normal, healthy cells (referred to as Autoimmunity).

Diamond Sponsor:


"We’re not in the wing business. We’re in the flavor business. It’s been our mission to serve the world flavor since we first opened shop in ’94, and we’re just getting started.

1997 saw the opening of our first franchised Wingstop Inc. location, and by 2002 we had served the world one billion wings. It’s flavor that defines us and has made Wingstop Inc. one of the fastest growing brands in the restaurant industry.

Wingstop Inc. is the destination when you crave fresh never faked wings, hand-cut seasoned fries and any of our famous sides. For people who demand flavor in everything they do, there’s only Wingstop Inc. – because it’s more than a meal, it’s a flavor experience."
