The Arthritis Foundation is excited to announce that the 2020 JA Conference is combining locations into one epic event – our first ever family reunion next summer in Orlando! July 23-26, 2020 Renaissance Orlando SeaWorld.
National Juvenile Arthritis Conference
Since 1984, the Arthritis Foundation’s annual National Juvenile Arthritis Conference has been a place where kids, teens, young adults, and their families (siblings included) come together to get better informed about juvenile arthritis (JA) and other rheumatic diseases, as well as share stories and exchange tips that can make living with the condition easier.
At this four-day educational conference, attendees will learn about the latest medical research and treatments, how to deal with challenges at school and home, how you can become an advocate for your child and for all kids with arthritis and much more. There’s plenty of time for fun, too, all while you connect with other families and make new friends. The whole family is invited!

We recommend participants also delay making firm plans until we can provide a definite decision regarding this even
