Juvenile Arthritis National Conference
The Arthritis Foundation’s nationwide event that has brought together and educated kids and families since 1984.
“Being with other families tops the list of benefits for our family. The relationships our children have developed at the JA Conference are phenomenal; these kids are their best friends, and they spend all of three days a year with them. This provides a layer of support that helps strengthen our family during difficult times.” –Parent whose daughter has JA
The Arthritis Foundation’s annual Juvenile Arthritis Conference is where kids, teens, young adults and their families come together to get better informed about juvenile arthritis (JA) and other rheumatic diseases, as well as share stories and exchange tips that can make living with the condition easier.
You’ll learn about the latest medical research and treatments, how to deal with challenges at school and home, how you can become an advocate for your child and for all kids with arthritis and much more. There’s plenty of time for fun and recreation, too, all while you connect with other families and make new friends.
