When we think of “faces of arthritis,” the first thing that comes to mind are the diverse faces of people who live with the disease. You already know that arthritis does not discriminate by age, color, gender, socioeconomic class or any other dividing line. But that’s only part of the story. There are also faces of arthritis research. Of policy and advocacy. The faces of public health and consumer outreach. All of these are the faces of arthritis — and in order for us to succeed in our mission to find new, more effective treatments and ultimately a cure for this disease in all its many forms, we must think of them together.
The Arthritis Foundation is uniquely positioned to pull together these many faces of arthritis. Through our relationships with doctors, legislators, pharmaceutical companies, government agencies, other voluntary health care organizations and many dedicated people, we work to synchronize the activities that will make a difference to those with arthritis. With your help, we will continue to make a difference.
