Arthritis Research Canada: Transforming lives through research


Around 20 to 30 years ago, people diagnosed with arthritis expected to become more and more disabled over time. They also believed the disease would cut their lives short. But thanks to arthritis research, patients don’t have to accept disability and premature death as their fate. Arthritis Research Canada has conducted life-changing research that suggests heart attacks and strokes in people with arthritis are actually complications caused by inflammation, which can be controlled. This means disability and premature death can be prevented! Find out how early diagnosis is a critical first step in transforming and saving the lives of people with arthritis.
