Welcome to Maryland
There are more than 52 million Americans with Arthritis - 1,083,000 of them live in Maryland. The Arthritis Foundation is the Champion of Yes. We are focused on finding a cure and championing the fight against arthritis through vital information, advocacy, science and community. Our goal is to chart a winning course, guiding families in developing personalized plans for saying yes – day after day.
Join Dr. Bita Arabshahi and Dr. Emily Way from Pediatric Specialists of Virginia as they host discussions on “Beyond the Joints” and “Principles of JIA Treatment” Lunch is included. This free event is open to all children with rheumatic diseases, their parents and siblings.
Make your voice heard at this landmark event – this Arthritis Foundation hosted meeting will provide the U.S. FDA and others an opportunity to hear directly from patients about what matters most to them. The patient’s perspective is critically important in ensuring drug development programs capture what is truly important. Patients and caregivers will share how OA impacts their lives, gaps in treatment and experiences with current treatments.
Register today to join us virtually through our live webinar. Participate in the OA poll, weigh in through a live chat or just listen as we discuss how we can change the fate of OA patients, together.
You will learn how to get more involved with the Arthritis Foundation and have a chance to connect with other families! There will be an animal exhibit, outdoor games, and nature based activities for the children to enjoy. Brunch will be provided.
You are invited to the Arthritis Foundation’s Maryland Community Gathering!
