Programs For Better Living Transition Plan
In an effort to modernize and streamline our mission delivery and focus our resources on activities that can make the greatest impact for people with arthritis, there will be a number of significant changes to the Programs For Better Living (Aquatics, Exercise, and Tai Chi programs).
The Arthritis Foundation is excited to announce we have formed a new partnership with the Aquatic Exercise Association (AEA). Effective immediately, the Aquatic Exercise Association will assume all operations and management of the Arthritis Foundation Exercise Program and the Arthritis Foundation Aquatic Program. Click links below for additional information about these changes:
Aquatics Program (water-based) - information about instructor trainings (including recertification)
Exercise Program (land-based) - information about instructor trainings (including recertification)
Tai Chi for Arthritis - information about classes in your area and instructor trainings (including recertification)
Walk With Ease Program - this program will remain a signature physical activity program of the Arthritis Foundation. For more information, contact Katie Pickens, Tennessee Associate Director of Development and Programs
