The Arthritis Foundation is excited to team up with Children’s National Health System for this great experience for children with juvenile arthritis (JA) and other rheumatic diseases, their parents, caregivers and siblings. The greatest benefit of these programs is getting to meet and network with other families who are affected by these conditions 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.
The event will be held at Glen Echo Park where you will enjoy a day of education, networking and fun. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
