Arizona Advocacy Council
Chair: Carol Kraker
Vice Chair: Jessica Edgar
The Arthritis Foundation’s Arizona Advocacy Council is a diverse group of Arizonans who are committed to improving the lives of those with arthritis.
Advocacy Council Chair Carol Kraker said, “The mission of the Arizona Advocacy Council is to make arthritis a public health priority for our state and to advance policies that positively impact the broad spectrum of people living with arthritis.”
She and other dedicated Advocacy Council members (including families of children with juvenile arthritis and health care professionals) join the 1,700 other arthritis advocates in Arizona to raise support and awareness of a debilitating disease that affects Arizonans of all ages.
