Community-Based Programs and Services
Proud Partner support allows the Arthritis Foundation to provide programs and services to people in communities across the nation. With Arthritis Foundation programs, you can strengthen muscles, improve flexibility and boost your mood and self-confidence. Taught by nationally certified instructors, the Arthritis Foundation’s Life Improvement Series empowers people with arthritis through aquatic, exercise and self-help programs that are proven to increase mobility, reduce pain and stiffness, and physician visits.
The Arthritis Foundation has a nationwide network of thousands of grassroots advocates committed to influencing positive changes in their lives, their communities and in their elected governments by making their personal stories and opinions known.
