Arthritis Foundation Diversity Resources
The Arthritis Foundation has programs and resources available to engage diverse populations.
Move More! Feel Great! In collaboration with the American Diabetes Association
Move More! Feel Great! is an educational program targeting the African American community through the “Live Empowered” series and Senior Day events from the American Diabetes Association. The goal of this program is to educate the community about using physical activity as a way to control and prevent both arthritis and diabetes. While arthritis and diabetes are two distinct and separate diseases, they cross paths more than you’d expect. This program is co-presented by the American Diabetes Association and the Arthritis Foundation. For more information contact Jeannine Galloway at firstname.lastname@example.org.

A diversity handbook was created for Arthritis Foundation staff and volunteers as a resource to increase diversity internally and externally. The handbook offers a wealth of resources bringing the AF one step closer to lessening the burden of arthritis within diverse populations. The purpose of the Diversity Resource Handbook is to increase awareness of culturally diverse populations and provide a breakdown of diverse populations in each of the AF regions.
