An estimated 300,000 children in the U.S. — that’s 1 in 250 kids — are affected by some form of JA. This disease takes a unique physical and emotional toll on kids, often resulting in debilitating pain and feelings of loneliness or depression. JA can make it especially challenging for kids to say Yes — Yes to playing, Yes to hanging out with friends, Yes to spending time with family, Yes to being a kid!
Please join the Arthritis Foundation for the 2019 JA Symposium. Dr. Jordan Jones of Children’s Mercy Hospital will speak to families about the latest advancements in pediatric rheumatology. Arthritis Foundation staff will share what we do to try and help you and your family in navigating life with juvenile arthritis. At the end of our program each family will be provided free tickets to the exhibit at Union Station as well as tickets to visit Science City!
