All the time. Share your story. Join the conversation now!

The month of September marks two milestones for arthritis in Canada: the arrival of Arthritis Awareness Month and the fifth year of the National Arthritis Awareness Program (NAAP). Since its launch, the NAAP has been creating innovative and interactive ways to broadcast the arthritis story. It continues to provide the newest arthritis information, education, programs and tools through the Arthritis Broadcast Network (ABN)—Canada’s leading online source of arthritis news.

This September, the NAAP celebrates the beginning of its fifth year with the introduction of two new exciting channels to the Arthritis Broadcast Network.

Featured ABN channels now include:

  • NAAP: National Arthritis Awareness Program *NEW*
  • Research: Groundbreaking research. Life-changing discoveries. *NEW*
  • News: Arthritis news. Anytime. Anywhere
  • Life: Living your best life with arthritis.
  • Arthritis Intel: Helping you detect, treat, and manage arthritis.
  • A-Team: Partnering with your healthcare team.
  • Women: Exploring women’s arthritis issues and needs.

We hear you. Now let the world hear you.

Join the conversation at the Arthritis Broadcast Network. Share your experience of living with arthritis by sending us your stories, videos and images, and we will share them with the world. Please email us at info@jointhealth.org. And feel free to start a conversation on ABN by commenting on a post that catches your interest.

To find out more about the NAAP, you can go to arthritisbroadcastnetwork.org or visit our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter or join us on LinkedIn.

Tip for parents with arthritis: Let the kids load the dishwasherFor people with inflammatory forms of arthritis, fatigue, depression, pain, and sometimes disability are all part of the package. Those living with arthritis may need help from family and friends with household chores, and even from their kids. So, for parents with arthritis there may be extra layers of guilt (as if there aren't enough already) that may come with the disease.

If you are wracked with guilt about having to make your children do more chores than their friends have to, you may be glad to hear that the work is good for them. Continue reading

2013 Walk to Fight Arthritis – Vancouver

The Walk to Fight ArthritisThe 2013 Walk to Fight Arthritis in Vancouver was a great success! JointHealth™ would like to congratulate the Arthritis Society on their success and thank them for hosting this annual event.

Early morning Sunday, over 1500 people participated in the walk which started at the Olympic Village, carried alongside the seawalk, and ended at the Olympic Village. Over $165,000 money was raised in BC. Participants had one goal in mind - bringing hope and support to people living with arthritis. Thank you to all who participated! We hope you enjoy this photo album and will share this with everyone you know to continue the everlasting support and spirit of the walk.
