Community-based Programs and Services

With Arthritis Foundation programs, you can strengthen muscles, improve flexibility and boost your mood and self-confidence. Taught by nationally certified instructors, the Arthritis Foundation’s Life Improvement Series empowers people with arthritis through aquatic, exercise and self-help programs that are proven to increase mobility, reduce pain and stiffness, and physician visits.
The Arthritis Foundation has a nationwide network of thousands of grassroots advocates committed to influencing positive changes in their lives, their communities and in their elected governments by making their personal stories and opinions known.
