Rheumatoid Awareness Day

Sunday, February 2, 2014

February 2 has been established as Rheumatoid Awareness Day — a day to promote education and awareness for rheumatoid arthritis.  Add your voice and help spread the truth about this often misunderstood and underestimated disease.  Together, we can do more!

Thousands of patients are joining an international movement to increase awareness for the chronic illness known as rheumatoid arthritis, or rheumatoid disease, in anticipation of the second annual Rheumatoid Awareness Day on February 2.
Rheumatoid Awareness Day was established in 2013 by the Rheumatoid Patient Foundation (RPF) to address the lack of awareness for rheumatoid arthritis — often presumed to be a type of arthritis — and resulting inadequacies in disability accommodations, clinical care, healthcare costs and research funding.
