Research news, updates & more from the Arthritis National Research Foundation
MAY: ARTHRITIS AWARENESS MONTH
There are more than 58.5 million adults living with arthritis everyday in the U.S. and that number continues to grow — making the research ANRF funds more important than ever.
Throughout the month of May, we will be sharing updates and stories of those impacting progress toward a cure for arthritis and related autoimmune disease research. We hope you will join in supporting continuing research and the scientists doing this work. Your donation throughout May will be put to immediate use in funding grants as we prepare to announce our next cohort of researchers in June.

For those living with arthritis, one of the beneficial and proactive approaches to managing the day-to-day effects of the disease is to follow an anti-inflammatory diet, altering traditional recipes to include relevant ingredients and creating entirely new ones when possible and available. Offering recipes is a simple way to provide a useful, weekly resource. Check out current recipes and bookmark the link for reference as more are added.
