On Twitter? Join us for #CreakyChats

Our next #CreakyChats will take place on Monday, April 2nd. This chat will be one of our 24 hour discussions, so please feel free to participate throughout the day.

Our topic was inspired by a blog post on CreakyJoints that explored what life would be like without chronic disease.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas.

You don’t need to have a form of arthritis to participate. Anyone with any disease is invited to use the hashtag and share..
