Making RA More Visible: Arthritis Awareness Month 2022

Last updated: May 2023

May marks Arthritis Awareness Month! As an "invisible condition," rheumatoid arthritis (RA) can often be misunderstood, especially by those who do not have RA.

As a result, this year's theme, Making RA More Visible (#makingRAmorevisible), aims to illuminate the wide range of experiences, symptoms, and feelings of people living with RA.

Below are tools for raising awareness about life with RA and ways to connect with others.
