Carolyn A. Goard"I joined Arthritis Society Canada in 2018, first overseeing our Canada-wide knowledge translation portfolio, and now also our patient and public education resources. I love that I get to communicate about the latest research and medical evidence in an accessible way to inform and empower the arthritis community, and work with colleagues in different departments to collectively make an impact as we transform what it means to have arthritis. It continues to inspire me to work alongside such talented, values-driven colleagues and volunteers everyday, and I have never felt so united as a team."

George Ratna"I have had the pleasure of working at Arthritis Society Canada since 2014, first joining as the Manager, Online Marketing. Right from the start, I found a supportive culture and colleagues nationwide who cared for each other, the work we do and the people we serve. I am also fortunate to have been given opportunities to grow as a leader with coaching, mentoring and many development opportunities. Today I am honoured, through my leadership role, to make a true impact in moving forward our mission of helping people with arthritis fight the fire of this terrible disease and live better. I would not have had this privilege without the supportive culture at Arthritis Society Canada that’s focused on unity, transformation and impact."
