Arthritis Research Education Series
Prevent. Thrive. Find Answers.
Arthritis is Serious! It affects over 6 million Canadians, young and old, and can have life-threatening consequences. Arthritis can affect how you live and how long you live.
Arthritis Research Canada/Arthrite-recherche Canada’s mission is to transform the lives of people with arthritis through research and engagement. Our research gives patients the tools needed to triumph over pain and disability. Arthritis research is the only way to find answers that will ease pain, lessen disability and improve quality of life for people with arthritis.
Arthritis Research Canada works for and with patients. Our team of world-class, research scientists collaborate with our Arthritis Patient Advisory Board (APAB) partners to ensure our research is relevant, meaningful and helpful. We conduct research aimed at arthritis prevention, facilitating early diagnosis, new and better treatments, and improving quality of life. Our goal is to get research results into the hands of those who need it most, right now!
