Arthritis Introspective is pleased to be part of the Arthritis Foundation family. The goal of our Arthritis Support Networks is to provide personalized help & support to adults with all types of arthritis and rheumatic conditions. Our peer-led, local support networks offer connection, education, and empowerment. Almost all of our opportunities can be done remotely by volunteers who are making a difference for adults living with arthritis in all stages of adulthood.
Arthritis Support Networks are part of an expanding range of Arthritis Foundation resources that provides personalized help & support to adults with all types of arthritis and rheumatic conditions. Our peer-led, local support networks offer connection, education and empowerment.
How we fulfill our goal:
Local networks provide a supportive social connection. Groups are guided by trained volunteer leaders and are tailored to each group’s needs. Group members become self-advocates and develop self-management skills.
Annual Conference Gathering
Each year conference attendees meet for a multi-day education event geared toward learning, bonding, and developing important skills in leadership and mutual support.
Connect online with others for support and inspiration. Participants can share stories and learn from the experiences of others with arthritis.
Groups meet at least six times a year and feature a combination of educational and social activities that are inclusive to people living with all types of arthritis.
Trained volunteer leaders share a common goal of bringing people together for activities focused on mutual support and positive coping strategies for living well.
