JA National Conference

The annual Juvenile Arthritis National Conference is the Arthritis Foundation’s signature, nationwide event for families affected by juvenile arthritis. Over 30 years, we’ve brought together thousands of families, actually more than 22,000 people – kids, parents, siblings, caretakers and health care professionals and other experts.

Join us for this four-day educational event that focuses on health, wellness and fun for children affected by juvenile idiopathic arthritis, lupus, myositis, ankylosing spondylitis and other rheumatic diseases. The whole family is invited! There are special educational and social programming tracks for parents, kids, teens and young adults.  

This Juvenile Arthritis National Conference offers a chance to meet other families going through similar challenges, share stories, learn about the latest treatments and research, and strategies for managing daily activities and developmental and social issues. We bring to you top experts in pediatric rheumatology and related health care, research, educational rights, psychology, access to care and more!
