A parent mentoring program
A diagnosis of JA can be overwhelming. Through our Parent2Parent Network, we pair parent mentors with parents of children who are newly diagnosed with JA or other rheumatic diseases. Our mentors are trained volunteers who understand the challenges of raising a child with arthritis and can provide understanding, guidance and a helping hand to parents who are just learning about the disease. Parents and mentors can choose to communicate via phone or email. The Parent2Parent program is free.
