Your help is needed to improve the lives of people with arthritis

Arthritis Consumer Experts is pleased to announce an exciting new partnership with the National Data Bank for Rheumatic Diseases (NDB). The NDB undertakes critically important work in arthritis research by conducting surveys in order to collect data about rheumatic diseases directly from people living with them. The goals of the NDB project are to "advance knowledge about the causes, outcomes, costs, treatments, and results of treatments related to rheumatic conditions".

Participation in survey work like this represents an important opportunity for people with arthritis to have an impact on arthritis research. Too often, people with arthritis are unable to volunteer in conventional settings, due to fatigue, joint damage and disability, and other effects of arthritis. By participating in research, people with arthritis can contribute to efforts to improve the lives of others living with arthritis.

Thank you,

Arthritis Consumer Experts
