Look at Us, We are A-1 is an online children’s book meant to bring information, education and support to children and their caregivers. Alpha-1 affected children are of particular concern as early intervention and education can make a significant positive difference in the progression and outcomes of the disease.

For easier reading, we refer to Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency as Alpha-1 and to those with the disease as Alphas.
The A-1 mascot is Alphazilla, a friendly and loveable dragon that children can identify with.

Look at Us, We are A-1 is written in age appropriate language and reviewed by healthcare providers, so children can learn about Alpha-1 online.
