Welcome to Idaho
The Arthritis Foundation, Great West Region offers information, community events, advocacy and research funding for the one in every four Idaho residents who struggle daily with this serious health epidemic.
Do you feel like you're being squeezed between care-giving for both your children and your parents? Are you being pulled in different directions? Join this webinar to discuss the challenges of the "sandwich generation" and learn helpful survival tips for the challenges of caregiving.
Join us as we speak out for arthritis research and access to care in 2015! Team up with other advocates and Arthritis Foundation staff in Washington, D.C. to meet with legislators and staff on Capitol Hill to tell Congress that more needs to be done for people with arthritis.
JA Family Day is an event for children and teens with rheumatic conditions and their families. Join us to learn about arthritis, network with families who have similar concerns, and enjoy a day of fun activities!
Be a Voice for Change
In spite of the Arthritis Foundation’s opposition and advocacy efforts, the Idaho Board of Pharmacy has approved a new regulation that will allow for the substitution of biologic medications with biosimilar drugs. Arthritis Foundation Ambassador Dr. Yolonda Barnes published an op-ed in the Idaho Press Tribune urging the Idaho Board of Pharmacy to refrain from approving this policy.
Build a stronger community for the 50 million Americans living with arthritis by lending a helping hand to mission and fundraising activities. The Arthritis Foundation provides flexible scheduling and volunteer opportunities for all ages and abilities.
