|Description & Services|
|Information||The Arthritis Society is a national health charity, fueled by donors and volunteers, with a vision to live in a world where people are free from the devastating effects that arthritis has on lives.
The Arthritis Society began 70 years ago with one very clear goal; to alleviate the suffering of people crippled by arthritis. Founded in 1948 by Dr. Wallace Graham and his medical peers from across the country, it was Mary Pack, a fiercely driven community advocate who worked tirelessly to put peoples’ needs truly into the spotlight. Today, that same passion exists in communities across Canada.
The Arthritis Society is proud to have the trust and support of donors and sponsors who provide the ability to invest in cutting-edge research, proactive advocacy and innovative solutions that will deliver better health outcomes for people affected by arthritis.
With funding, the Arthritis Society develops and disseminates evidence-based information and education with the goal of improving quality of life for people living with arthritis and invests in scientific discovery as Canada’s largest source of charitable research funding in arthritis.
The Arthritis Society benefits from the advice of subject matter experts on our National Board, our Division Advisory Boards and Medical, Scientific and Patient-centric committees along with the energy and passion of over 13.000 volunteers.
