Winter 2020 (Volume 30, Number 4)
By Trish Barbato, President and CEO,
Throughout 2020 and the challenges it has brought to
all of us in the arthritis community, the Arthritis Society
has never wavered in its commitment to support
people affected by the disease.
At a time when many health charities have had to scale
back their research efforts, we are continuing to meet our
funding commitments, and making new ones.
Our Arthritis Talks education webinars, now taking place
monthly, are reaching thousands more Canadians than ever
before. And, we are steadily adding to our collection of evidence-based online information for people with arthritis.
We invite you to visit our website, arthritis.ca, to check
out our comprehensive overview of emerging treatment
and research, our guide to drug-free pain management options,
a detailed biologics and biosimilars portal and lifestyle
supports such as our “Life Hack” video series.
As Canada’s voice for the six million Canadians with
arthritis, the Arthritis Society is also continuing our campaigns
aimed at shining a light on the disease. This holiday
season, we’re focusing our messaging on how arthritis takes
away the simple joys of life.

Thank you for being among the Canadians helping to
diminish the pain of arthritis. We encourage you to share
our new resources with your patients and networks.
