After a diagnosis, patients and those close to them are often inundated with new information and terminology previously unfamiliar to them. This can seem overwhelming and after going through the literature you can end up with more questions than answers. We have therefore decided to include an “Ask the Experts” section in the ANRF Chronicle! Each month we will select a question submitted from our community for one of our researchers or physicians to answer. Staying well informed is key to being your own best health advocate. Send your questions to, find the answers you need, and help our community learn from your curiosity.


Yoga For A Cure

ANRF is pleased to announce the latest addition to our Racing for a Cure program. Yoga for a Cure lets you support arthritis research by practicing your favorite asanas with friends, family, or in your own home practice. Yoga has long been considered beneficial in the management of arthritis pain. Now, with Yoga for a Cure, it can also help drive scientific discovery. Learn more and get started today!
