October 12 is World Arthritis Day! This day of recognition helps raise awareness about arthritis and the more than 350 million people it affects every day. Join AOII and many others across the world by wearing blue or wearing a blue ribbon, as blue is the official international color for arthritis awareness! Learn more about supporting arthritis awareness by visiting the Arthritis Foundation or Arthritis Society websites.
On this day, many voices will be heard around the world to raise global awareness about all facets of the disease. Through activities around the world, organizations and patient advocates will promote awareness of the symptoms connected to arthritis and highlight the importance of early diagnosis to gain access to the proper medical treatment as soon as possible.
Another way to support World Arthritis Day is to purchase the Stronger Than Arthritis t-shirt from the AOII Emporium. $5 from each sale will be donated directly to The Arthritis Foundation. Click below to order today!
