JULY: JUVENILE ARTHRITIS AWARENESS 

Nearly 300,000 children have been diagnosed with some form of juvenile arthritis (JA). Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), one form of juvenile arthritis prevalent in the U.S., affects more than 50,000 children. Juvenile arthritis normally appears in children as young as six months old, and as old as 18. Young adults still suffer the pain of the juvenile forms of arthritis. Joint pain, reddened joints and swelling that simply refuses to dissipate are key symptoms. Rheumatologists are finding that the number of joints affected has a parallel connection to the severity of the disease and the likelihood of achieving total remission.

Throughout the month, we will be sharing more information about research, ANRF grant funded scientists doing this work and stories of those who manage their life with JA/JIA through its onset and into adulthood.
