The guide is composed by experts and designed to offer detailed information on drugs used to treat arthritis. It answers questions around available medications, including details on dosages, effectiveness, side effects, warnings and more. The guide will also help you identify specific questions you may wish to ask your health-care team about your treatment and care.

New Charity Challenge adventures

The Arthritis Society is headed Beyond the Grand Canyon. Our latest Charity Challenge fundraising adventure is a remarkable trek through sandstone canyons, stunning waterfalls, and the heart of the ancient Havasupai homelands. Also due to overwhelming interest in trekking to Machu Picchu, we have launched a second trip in April 2016! Once-in-a-lifetime journeys… with a purpose.
