CHAMPION OF YES. We Exist to Conquer Arthritis.
The Arthritis Foundation is focused on finding a cure and championing the fight against arthritis with life-changing information, advocacy, science and community.
We are the only Arthritis Nonprofit Health Organization that fights for people with arthritis by co-creating a personalized plan to live their best life, one “yes” at a time. The Arthritis Foundation is the largest, private, not-for-profit contributor to arthritis research in the world, funding more than $380 million in research grants since 1948.
Arthritis has a 26% prevalence rate in New Mexico, which is more than the national average of 1 in 5 adults. Today in New Mexico there are 373,000 adults and 2,000 children suffering from the daily pain of arthritis.
ACCESS AND ADVOCACY | ON CAPITOL HILL AND BEYOND
People with arthritis face unique barriers to care: high costs of treatment, difficulty accessing medications, scarcity of specialists and more. It’s hard for any individual to fight the battle alone. But through the Arthritis Foundation’s effective and committed advocacy network, we’re working to address key issues on both the state and federal levels with lawmakers, insurers and regulators. We’re helping ease your burdens rather than make your goals harder to reach.
SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERY | FOR BETTER TREATMENTS AND A CURE
Science holds the key to finding better treatments and one day a cure for the more than 50 million Americans with arthritis and related diseases. On their behalf, the Arthritis Foundation continues to lead and fund cutting-edge scientific investigation to discover more about arthritis – what causes it, what affects it, what can stop it – and what can keep it from developing in the first place. Our new scientific strategy will lead to a faster cure by strengthening the research pipeline and engaging creative minds.
HELP AND SUPPORT | WHEN AND WHERE YOU NEED IT
At the Arthritis Foundation, we’re expanding our reach to assist even more people with arthritis. We offer trusted information, powerful health tracking tools and ways to connect with others. We’re working with health care providers and other partners to strengthen our educational and interactive offerings. We’re also building a state-of-the-art digital enterprise so you can customize your online experience, find local resources and live better than ever.
JUVENILE ARTHRITIS | OUR UNWAVERING PROMISE TO FAMILIES
The needs of families living with juvenile arthritis (JA) are unique and urgent. In the United States, 300,000 children have JA. Multiply that by their parents, siblings, extended family and others, and the number of people affected is astronomical. For almost seven decades, the Arthritis Foundation has upheld our unwavering promise to assist them and their caregivers. We’re boldly leading the JA fight, ensuring easy access to life-changing resources, community and care.
COMMUNITY AND CONNECTIONS | MAKING A DIFFERENCE
When you join the movement, you become part of the answer. Our social media communities and fundraising events allow you to form meaningful connections and find ways to give back – getting the support you need while supporting others.
Arthritis Foundation New Mexico is working to improve the lives of the 373,000 adults and 2,000 children across our state who struggle every day with this serious health epidemic. To help reduce the unacceptable pain, disability and other burdens of arthritis and related diseases, we offer information, events, research grants, advocacy activities and other vital programs and services.
