The Arthritis Foundation has a long history of celebrating leaders in our community whose work impacts those with arthritis. Holding a number of positions within Ford in the United States and Asia, we are very enthused about celebrating Joe’s leadership and his return to the United States. Given that arthritis is a leading cause of industrial absenteeism, it is particularly applicable that we celebrate Joe for his global leadership in the automobile industry and issues related to a workforce that must contend with the daily challenges of arthritis. In addition to celebrating Joe, the Tribute to Excellence also has a very important purpose: raising money to fund research, heighten awareness and expand the portfolio of important services the Foundation offers to aid in the prevention, control and cure of this debilitating disease.

WHY:

Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the United States. In Michigan, arthritis affects one in four adults, imposes work limitations on one-third of our working-age citizens, increasingly affects retirees and costs the state $6 billion annually. Additionally, arthritis is a leading cause of industrial absenteeism, affecting both employee presence and productivity.

The Arthritis Foundation has a long history of celebrating leaders in our community whose work impacts those with arthritis. Holding a number of positions in America and Asia, Joe understands the risks, challenges and impact of arthritis on a manufacturing workforce.  It is particularly applicable, and it is a privilege to celebrate Joe for his global leadership in the automobile industry and issues related to a workforce that must contend with the daily challenges of arthritis.

In addition to celebrating Joe, the Tribute to Excellence also has a very important purpose: raising money to fund research, heighten awareness and expand the portfolio of important services the Foundation offers to aid in the prevention, control and cure of this debilitating disease.
