In September we shine the spotlight on arthritis for Arthritis Awareness Month.
We launched our fiery new awareness campaign last September and have been working hard over the past 12 months to turn up the heat through all that we do. We recently awarded more than $1.2M to our inaugural Ignite Innovation Grants, invested in four Arthritis Ideators to help bring their innovations to those who need them most, and launched a new Social Impact program.

And while we’ve been raising the alarm about the seriousness of arthritis, we’ve developed new high-impact resources for people living with the disease. This includes our Your Finances and Arthritis web pages so that people are armed with important information on topics such as tax credits and benefits.

We’ve also launched a comprehensive Pain Management Guide. Both these resources can be accessed by scanning the respective QR codes to the right.

In addition to regularly adding new resources, we continue to offer our popular monthly Arthritis Talks webinars — which last year reached more than 107,000 people. And we’re proud to be supporting a growing number of people through our free Arthritis Line, where people can have their questions answered by phone at 1.800.321.1433 or email at

Thank you for sharing our resources with your patients and continuing to shine a spotlight on arthritis every day.
