General

  • Mission:
  • To improve lives through leadership in the prevention, control and cure of arthritis and related diseases.

  • Overview:
  • Arthritis, the # 1 cause of workforce disability in the United States, is a serious, debilitating and growing public health epidemic that has been tolerated for too long and demands more public attention than ever. With each passing day, more children, adults and seniors are diagnosed with arthritis and related diseases; a fact which we find to be unacceptable. As one in four Georgians are affected by arthritis, we all know someone whose life has been altered by this debilitating disease. Arthritis means lost days of work, missed opportunities and financial burdens for individuals and companies. Because of this, many have committed their resources to the Arthritis Foundation’s efforts.

  • History:
  • The Arthritis Foundation is the largest national nonprofit organization that supports the more than 100 types of arthritis and related conditions. Founded in 1948, with headquarters in Atlanta, the Arthritis Foundation has multiple service points located throughout the country. We’re also the largest private, nonprofit contributor to arthritis research in the world, funding more than $450 million in research grants since 1948. The Foundation helps people take control of arthritis by providing public health education; pursuing public policy and legislation; and conducting evidence-based programs to improve the quality of life for those living with arthritis.
