Patient Education Initiatives

Patient Education Initiatives

The Global Healthy Living Foundation works with various partners to create education campaigns for the millions of arthritis patients and caregivers who come to our site looking for education, support, advocacy, and patient-centered research. Our campaigns are designed to empower our community to advocate for themselves, create a better relationship with their care partners, and take control of their symptoms so they can prevent long-term complications and manage daily life. At the heart of our initiatives: Help is out there and that means our CreakyJoints community should never settle for feeling just fine.
