Arthritis Foundation

What is the Arthritis Foundation?

The Arthritis Foundation is the national not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for those affected by arthritis. Founded in 1948, the Arthritis Foundation is the only national voluntary health agency seeking the causes, cures, preventions, and treatments for the more than 100 forms of arthritis.

The Arthritis Foundation draws its strength from its members, who through their volunteering and contributions provide powerful resources to bring arthritis under control. You can help by contacting the Foundation at (800) 933-0032.
