Connect with like minded Advocates like yourself using social media!
You can share your ideas and messages about being an Advocate, how you are raising awareness, your meeting with your Member of Congress and what it was like to let them know more needs to be done for people with arthritis. Use one platform or all of them. We want you to share your story during the Advocacy Summit!
