I know there's a few people in the community here who were diagnosed before 16 years or with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) and thought I'd post about our new service, JIA-at-NRAS, which launches this month.
Our aims will be to raise awareness of JIA, provide information and support to families, campaign at government level to ensure that the needs of families, children and young people affected by JIA are understood and prioritised. We will also be working with health professionals and other charities to ensure we are all striving towards the same goal: ‘a better life for young people living with JIA’.
If you would like to find out more or attend our launch day on Saturday 19th July, please visit nras.org.uk/jia
You can also help (and this is for those with RA too!) by joining our Thunderclap to help raise awareness of the launch and JIA as July is JIA Awareness Month. Please sign up at thunderclap.it/projects/134...
