Interested in Hawaii state advocacy?

We are developing the Hawaii Advocacy Council and looking for e-AdvocatesArthritis Ambassadors and supporters that are committed to improving the lives of those living with arthritis as well as connecting with Hawaii's state legislators!

The Hawaii Advocacy Council’s mission 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. To do so, we must let elected officials know how arthritis impacts their constituents and the policies that will improve the lives of those they’ve been elected to serve.

For more information or to join the movement, please contact VP of Government Affairs & Advocacy, Krystin Herr at
