Video: Rheumatoid Patient Foundation Gives RA Patients a Voice

Rheumatoid Patient Foundation badgeThis week, the Rheumatoid Patient Foundation (RPF) conducts our first exhibit at the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) Annual Scientific Meeting. Beginning tomorrow, we’ll present our video The Faces of Rheumatoid Disease to doctors, researchers, and industry attending the ACR meeting. We’ve also prepared other materials that we’ll be sharing with you in the coming days, including literature, art, and a slideshow!

Together we can do more. And we’ve already begun!

Please join us! You are welcome and needed at the RPF! Watch this 3 minute video!

The mission of the Rheumatoid Patient Foundation is to improve the lives of people living with Rheumatoid Disease, also commonly called Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA).
