Togetherness Powers Our RA Community: Arthritis Awareness Month 2023

May 1 kicks off Arthritis Awareness Month! Awareness of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is important for many reasons.

RA is a condition that is often misunderstood. Increased awareness can help dispel RA myths, help those without RA better understand what it's like, and support those who feel all alone in their RA management.

Arthritis Awareness May 2023

This year, we are highlighting Arthritis Awareness Month with the theme "Togetherness Powers Our RA Community" as a way to raise awareness that – no matter where you are on your RA journey – our community thrives because we are in it together. As part of Awareness Month, we're launching a new giveaway!

Also, below are details on ways to connect with our RA community through popular conversations, sharing your RA story, and more!

Enter our giveaway!

Starting Monday, May 1, 2023, and ending Wednesday, May 24, you can enter our CINCOM Hand Massager Giveaway
