2019 Juvenile Arthritis Symposium

March 2, 2019 @ 9:30 am 12:00 pm

National Arthritis Foundation

Arthritis Foundation – Missouri

Saturday, March 2, 2019

Program Information

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!
