About the Arthritis Foundation
Striking one in every five adults and 300,000 children in the US, arthritis is the nation’s leading cause of disability. In Alabama alone, more than 1.2 million adults and nearly 5,000 have a doctor-diagnosed form of arthritis.
The Arthritis Foundation is the world’s largest private nonprofit funder of arthritis research, investing more than $450 million in strategic initiatives resulting in treatments that have given mobility back to countless patients. In addition to research funding the Arthritis Foundation fights for health care policies that improve the lives of the millions who live with arthritis, and partners with individuals and families locally to provide empowering programs and information.
