Arthritis Research Provides Tools to Improve Everyday Life with Arthritis


VANCOUVER, BC, Nov. 30, 2023  – Arthritis is a serious disease that affects over 6 million Canadians and does not have a cure. It is painful and often disabling, making it difficult for people to care for family, manage work, participate in leisure activities, and more. In partnership with the Arthritis Patient Advisory Board, Arthritis Research Canada has created an Education Series that provides important research-based information and tools to help people manage their arthritis.

Arthritis Research Canada conducts practical research that addresses the impact of arthritis on everyday life and is developing tools and resources to help people overcome challenges caused by arthritis.

Each episode of the Arthritis Research Education Series has been created to address a specific topic, including insomnia and sleep, preventing falls, mental health, preventing and treating arthritis complications like heart disease, exercise, staying employed, navigating biosimilar transition policies and more!

Arthritis Research Canada is leading research, finding answers and saving lives. Check out the Arthritis Research Education Series: your map for navigating life with arthritis.
