Share Your Story to Take Action

Sharing your arthritis story is crucial to breaking down barriers to care for patients across the country. Your unique story puts a human face on a complex disease and helps legislators understand the need to address barriers to care: high costs of treatment, difficulty accessing medications, scarcity of specialists and coinsurance that limits access to treatment. There are many opportunities for sharing your story – from writing a blog post to sharing your story on Capitol Hill - you will be a part of increasing the visibility of arthritis among policymakers. If you are experiencing a barrier to care, we want to hear from you.
