The Arthritis Foundation is the Champion of Yes. We lead the fight for the arthritis community through life-changing information and resources, access to optimal care, advancements in science and community connections. Our goal is to chart a winning course and make each day another stride towards a cure.
The Arthritis Foundation provides advocacy, awareness and health related programming in the Dane County community. We support those who fight this disease on a daily basis and make a true impact in the face of arthritis. The Arthritis Foundation recognized the continuous battle women face, not only those living with arthritis, but for those who are also caregivers of the disease. Many women in our region, in addition to those living with this debilitating disease, also have children who live with the daily struggles of arthritis. There are 6,000 children living with juvenile arthritis in Wisconsin alone!
Studies confirm that in a primary household, the woman is the advocate for her family’s healthcare needs, making medical appointments and speaking out publically on behalf of the disease to promote public awareness and policy change. It is our mission to give these women the tools to do just that, supporting the Foundation and being advocates for change. As ambassadors armed with this knowledge, these women truly will change the face of arthritis and its affects.
You are invited to join the Arthritis Foundation and female leaders on Wednesday, October 5, 2016 to celebrate the incredible impact of women in Dane County and surrounding areas. You’ll enjoy networking, lunch and a program highlighting truly inspirational women.
