Welcome to Central and Western PA
There are more than 50 million Americans with Arthritis - 2,984,000 of them live in Pennsylvania. 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.
Being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis is a life-changing experience. But there’s a lot you can do to take control of your situation – and we’re here to help you. This free event is an opportunity unlike any other you’ve had – you’ll receive expert guidance from a local rheumatologist and learn to set and track your own health goals, communicate more effectively with your doctor and other tips and tricks on how to live better with your RA. You will leave armed with the tools, education and support to start saying Yes more than No!
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. It's a place to exchange ideas, give and receive encouragement, make new friends and know you're not alone.
