At ANRF, we believe that arthritis awareness is something that should be spread every day of the year. As we work to fund research that will improve outcomes for treatments, we also know that providing knowledge to the community can reduce stigma and help patients advocate for their own care. In this special Arthritis Awareness Month edition of the ANRF Chronicle, we bring you articles that highlight the importance of awareness, profile a young advocate for RA patients, and share thoughts from members of our community. You will also find popular features like new anti-inflammatory recipes and answers from our experts.
I hope you enjoy this special edition and thank all of those who have participated in Arthritis Awareness Month. I am proud of the work that our community is doing to speak up for patients and support medical research. Thank you for your commitment to each other and to the mission of ANRF.
