Arthritis does not discriminate based on age and many do not know that it is also a disease that effects children. July is Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month, so in keeping with raising awareness for Juvenile Arthritis (JA) this edition of the Chronicle focuses on all things JA.

We answer some common questions surrounding the condition, we explore past, present and future JA research supported by the ANRF and highlight promising new findings for improved treatment.

Our ever-popular anti-inflammatory recipes are all geared towards new versions of childhood favourites. Finally, we have partnered with the incredible Kendra Scott to give our community the chance to shop with a fantastic discount with proceeds going to JA research – a gift that truly keeps on giving.
