The Arthritis Foundation was just awarded a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) award to develop a program to further educate families about research at both 2016 National JA Conference locations.
At each of the Arthritis Foundation’s National Juvenile Arthritis Conference, we meet children and their families that are participating in the conference for the first time. Different milestones are achieved – whether it’s meeting another family with the same diagnosis or seeing their kids play all day. Along with our veteran returning families, this makes for a truly amazing experience for all in attendance.
2015 Thank You Recap Video
In 2015, we received hundreds of thank you cards, notes and pictures from conference kids and their families. And while we are graciously humbled by their gratitude, these words continue to drive and inspire us here at the Arthritis Foundation more each year.
