The Arthritis Foundation is the largest and most trusted nonprofit organization dedicated to conquering the challenges of people with arthritis, the nation’s leading cause of disability.
Arthritis is a serious and growing health crisis, striking 50 million Americans (one in every five adults) and about 300,000 children. It is a complex and incurable condition; two major types of arthritis alone – osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis – cost the U.S. economy more than $156 billion annually in lost wages and medical expenses. Annually, arthritis and other rheumatic conditions cost the state economy $1,920,000,000.
The Arthritis Foundation is the Champion of Yes. We lead the fight for the arthritis community and help conquer everyday battles through life-changing information and resources, access to optimal care, advancements in science and community connections. Our goal is to chart a winning course, guiding families in developing personalized plans for living a full life – and making each day another stride towards a cure.
