On February 11, 2014, new Arthritis Foundation President and CEO Ann M. Palmer hosted a live webinar to hear input and answer questions from parents of children with arthritis. You can hear a recording of the webinar here.
The webinar was a wonderful opportunity for the Arthritis Foundation leadership to hear directly from families about the special needs and challenges this group faces. In addition to great questions about our core JA activities like the JA Conference, Kids Summit, local camps and family days, we also got some terrific ideas and input to help shape our future JA offerings.
We will post a complete list of the questions and answers from the webinar here soon, and we still want to hear from you. Submit any additional questions or ideas you may have to KGAT@arthritis.org and we will continually update our Q&A document.
Many of the webinar questions are related to the 2014 JA Conference coming up in Colorado this July. Registration for the Conference is open! You can see the agenda and learn how to attend here. Special thanks to 2014 Conference Chair Julie Butcher and the Great West Region Planning Committee for putting together an educational and empowering agenda with something for parents and kids of all ages!
