Welcome to Metropolitan Washington
There are more than 52 million Americans with Arthritis - 104,000 of them live in Washington D.C. 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.
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.
