Tell Congress: Support Research for an Arthritis Cure

This petition had 17,822 supporters

One in five American adults and 300,000 children have a form of arthritis. All of them dream of a future free from arthritis pain. Ignoring arthritis is unacceptable.

Arthritis limits the daily activities of 21 million Americans and accounts for $128 billion annually in economic costs.

Science is close to finding solutions -- public investment in biomedical research holds the real promise of improving the lives of millions of Americans with arthritis -- but we must continue to support the search for a cure.

Take action today to help find a cure. Urge your Members of Congress to support ground breaking juvenile arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis research funded by the National Institutes of Health.">Learn more about this issue.
