Tomorrow is World Arthritis Day and all sorts of cools things are happening. I wrote about some of them on HealthCentral:
"You are not alone. All over the world, millions of people live with
arthritis. This Friday, October 12, is World Arthritis Day – a time for
all of us to get together and make our voices heard.
An Introduction to World Arthritis Day
World Arthritis Day
is celebrated every year on October 12. It was created in 1996 as an
awareness initiative by PARE, the Standing Committee of People with
Arthritis/Rheumatism in Europe, the patient voice in EULAR (the European
League Against Rheumatism).
World Arthritis Day has three goals: to raise awareness of arthritis
and musculoskeletal conditions, to influence public policy to improve
the lives of people with such conditions and to make sure that those who
need it are aware of the support networks available. To reach these
goals, organizations in more than 50 countries work together with EULAR
and PARE to create a vast network of awareness."
