The Arthritis Foundation is the leading health organization addressing the needs of some 46 million Americans living with arthritis, one of the nation’s leading causes of disability.

Founded in 1948 and headquartered in Atlanta, GA, the Arthritis Foundation has multiple service points located throughout the country. The mission of the Foundation is to improve lives through leadership in the prevention, control and cure of arthritis and related diseases.

We’re the largest private, not-for-profit contributor to arthritis research in the world, funding more than $380 million in research grants since 1948. Together, volunteers and staff have helped individuals take control of arthritis by:

  • providing public health education
  • pursuing public policy and legislation
  • and conducting evidence-based programs to improve the quality of life for those living with arthritis

Information about arthritis and the Arthritis Foundation is available at www.arthritis.org.
