Help raise awareness about arthritis during #WorldArthritisDay! Since 1996, World Arthritis Day on October 12th has unified people of all ages, races, and genders to raise awareness of rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs). On this day, we strive to raise awareness and share information and support with RMD patients and their caregivers. This year’s theme, “Don’t Delay, Connect Today,” initiated by EULAR, aims to highlight the importance of early diagnosis of RMDs. Together, we can work together towards earlier diagnosis and timely access to care!
As the Champion of Yes, the Arthritis Foundation moves forward every day in ways to improve access to care, providing new information and supporting scientific advancements to find a cure. We strive to provide many ways for those with arthritis and their loved ones with ways to keep saying Yes to life – including valuable tools and resources, such as toolkits you can access on the go, a 24/7 helpline, and access to local resources that will help you conquer everyday challenges.
