Welcome to Connecticut
There are more than 50 million Americans with Arthritis - 663,000 of them live in Connecticut. The Arthritis Foundation is the Champion of Yes. We are focused on finding a cure and championing the fight against arthritis through vital information, advocacy, science and community. Our goal is to chart a winning course, guiding families in developing personalized plans for saying yes – day after day.
JA parent program is a great way to learn about the Arthritis Foundation resources and programs for families with JA. The greatest benefit of these programs is getting to meet and network with other families who are affected by JA and share some of the same feelings, experiences and concerns. It's a place to exchange ideas, give and receive encouragement, make new friends and know you're not alone.
Experts in Arthritis (EIA) is a free public education seminar for people with arthritis and people who care about them. The program offers people with arthritis the opportunity to be informed about current scientific evidence and management strategies in the treatment and care of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and juvenile arthritis (other forms of arthritis can be incorporated, based on need). Call Irena S. Richardson, Senior Programs Coordinator at Irena.email@example.com or 203-575-1545 to register.

JA Days are a great experience for children with juvenile arthritis (JA), their parents, caregivers and siblings. The greatest benefit of these programs is getting to meet and network with other families who are affected by JA and share some of the same feelings, experiences and concerns. Meet other New England JA families while enjoying lunch and bowling at beautiful Splitsville Luxury Lanes located immediately adjacent to Gillette Stadium. Parents and kids will have plenty of time to network and make new friends.
