Welcome to Michigan
The Michigan offices of the Arthritis Foundation are working to improve the lives of the 2.3 million people across our state who struggle every day with this serious health epidemic.
To help reduce the unacceptable pain, disability and other burdens of arthritis and related diseases, we offer information, events, research grants, advocacy activities and other vital programs and services.

The Arthritis Foundation has a long history of celebrating leaders whose work has significantly impacted our community and those with arthritis. Arthritis is the nation’s leading cause of disability and Roger Penske and the Penske Corporation’s philanthropic endeavors have touched countless lives globally and here in Detroit – including those living with arthritis and other disabilities.
The School Resource Interactive CD is designed to allow you to easily move through the module to the areas that are of interest.

Join us at one of five 2014 Walk to Cure Arthritis events in Michigan. Walk to Cure Arthritis (formerly named Arthritis Walk) is a fun and non-competitive three-mile walking event that supports public awareness and raises funds to fight arthritis. People of all ages and origins get arthritis including children. It’s the leading cause of disability in the United States affecting more than 50
million people nationwide and 2.3 million in Michigan.
To help children deal with that and to let them feel like and accomplish what non-arthritic kids do every day, the Arthritis Foundation in 2003 established Camp Dakota, a summer camp for kids. Its facilities are similar to those at most camps – a swimming and fishing pond, nature center, trails, activity fields and, of course, a large campfire pit suitable for any marshmallow roast and sing-along. read more
