So you want to get more involved with National Arthritis Week eh? Well, you’re in luck! Check out some of these resources:
- Q&A on alternative/complimentary therapies, flare-ups, diet alterations, etc with Dr. Inam Haq, the Arthritis Research UK Associate Medical Director
- Get yourself up on the pledge wall over at Arthritis Research UK’s NAW HQ – you can take a pic with a pledge card and upload it or simply upload text (I think?)!
- Take the NAW survey! It doesn’t matter where you’re from either, and I love that.
- Learn about the different types of arthritis, caring for people with arthritic diseases, and more at the Pledge to Learn page.
Also, don’t forget World Arthritis Day is on Saturday, October 12th!
Whatever you do, get involved and promote awareness. Diseases where arthritis is involved aren’t always bone-focused (though those can be life threatening and scary as well); sometimes they’re mistakes in the immune system. These diseases can – and do – take away adults and children that we love. The only way things will get better and change is if we make that happen.
