Juvenile Arthritis

Juvenile Arthritis (JA) is an umbrella term used to describe the many autoimmune and inflammatory conditions that can develop in children ages 16 and younger. While arthritis typically affects joints, JA can involve the eyes, skin and gastrointestinal tract as well.

The Arthritis Foundation leads the way in helping people with arthritis live better today and create better tomorrows through new treatments, better access and, ultimately, cures. This works includes partnering with families (especially JA families) to provide empowering programs and information.

Here in the Arthritis Foundation South Central Region we are committed to creating opportunities for education, interaction, and fun for JA Families throughout Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico.
