We had a great time at the four JA Family Days in Alabama this year! Information for 2014 events coming soon!
What is JA Family Day?
JA Saturday is a chance for families of children with arthritis and related diseases to gather and learn more about juvenile arthritis, meet other families affected by the disease, and of course have fun!
Who attends JA Family Days?
Kids with JA or a rheumatic disease, their siblings, and parents. Families from any area are welcome to attend JA Family Days in any Alabama location.
What takes place at a JA Family Day?
For kids, we offer fun activities (varying by location). For parents, we offer Expert Q & A sessions with health professionals and resources from the Arthritis Foundation.
*Up to four tickets provided per family. Additional tickets may be purchased through the Arthritis Foundation at a discounted rate.*

2013 JA National Conference
The Juvenile Arthritis Conference is the Arthritis Foundation's signature nationwide gathering for families impacted by juvenile arthritis and rheumatic diseases. Specific educational tracks focus on issues relating to parents, young adults, teens, children and siblings. Meet other families going through similar challenges, share stories, learn new techniques for managing juvenile arthritis and have fun!
