Make a difference by donating now to the 30th Annual Juvenile Arthritis Conference.
The Juvenile Arthritis (JA) Conference is life-changing for families in need of support and information. It is the only opportunity for families, across the nation, affected by JA to come together for up-to-date medical information, to connect with other families who share similar experiences, and to let families and youth with arthritis know they are not alone.
The conference includes activities for the whole family:
- The Children and Teen Program helps kids develop new skills to manage arthritis.
- The Young Adult Program provides insights into transitioning to college and career, dating, and medical aspects of arthritis.
- The Parent Program presents information about caring for a child with arthritis and the effects the disease can have on the whole family.
The JA Conference is excited to be celebrating its 30th Anniversary, returning to the location of the first JA Conference in 1984 – Keystone, Colorado. It’s amazing how far we’ve come in 30 years. Back then, we had 180 participants; last year, we sold out at 1,250 participants.
Registration fees cover only a small portion of the total meeting costs, with the Arthritis Foundation subsidizing a large portion of this event. Help us make this year’s conference the best yet – your donation will make a difference!
