The eleven offices of the Pacific Region of the Arthritis Foundation are working to improve the lives of almost 6 million people who struggle every day with this serious health epidemic. To help reduce the unacceptable pain, disability and other burdens of arthritis and related diseases, we offer information, events, research grants, advocacy activities and other vital programs and services.
