2018 JA Day - Pawtucket, RI

7/14/2018

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.

July 14 is Margaritaville Night at McCoy Stadium. Come dressed in your cool summer outfit and sunglasses.
