The Arthritis Foundation promotes government and private sector action to improve the lives of the 50 million Americans living with arthritis. But we need your help to get more government funding for arthritis research, to encourage early diagnosis and comprehensive treatment, and to improve access to quality health care for everyone with arthritis. Visit our advocacy page for the tools you need to become informed about the issues and to make your voice heard.
Patient Education Forums
The Arthritis Foundation offers educational forums, town hall meetings and roundtable discussions with rheumatologists, orthopedists, physical therapists and other professionals. Topics in these forums include stress management, back pain, join replacement options and more.
The Arthritis Foundation is committed to providing the most up-to-date, reliable information on living with arthritis and what better way to do it by speaking in our communitites. Please consider inviting one of the knowledgeable, talented, engaging members of the Arthritis Foundation's Speakers Bureau to deliver a presentation at your location.

Presentations like "Discover Arthritis...Take Control!" and "Physical Activity and Arthritis" provide audiences with facts and resources to help them live with arthritis more successfully.
