As September approaches, The Society is busy preparing for an exciting month of activities surrounding Arthritis. From local public information forums to Facebook events and media campaigns, we're in high gear to educate Canadians about a disease that affects 4.6 million Canadians.
We are all working together in our effort to improve the lives of Canadians living with arthritis. To further improve awareness and to help break the stigma and barriers around the disease, we have a number of exciting announcements and events throughout the month of September.
Release of Ipsos Reid Omnibus Survey Results: The Arthritis Society commissioned a survey to research Canadians' attitudes about joint pain and stigma. The results of the survey will be revealed in a news release on September 5th.
Launch of new arthritis website: Canadians with arthritis now have a dependable go-to resource for managing their disease. A new website (www.arthritis.ca) launching on September 5th, gives visitors customized information about their type of illness as well as treatment options from experts. Website visitors are invited to explore the new website and participate in our online scavenger hunt to win prizes! For more details, visit www.arthritis.ca/scavengerhunt
Online Facebook events: The Arthritis Society will hold Facebook events during September, featuring health care experts who will discuss topics such as treatment, nutrition and exercise. Participants will be invited to ask questions and share their experiences with arthritis. For more details, visit www.arthritis.ca/aam
"We Have Arthritis" Share Your Photo Contest: The Arthritis Society is launching a special campaign to raise awareness about the impact of the disease. Participants will be asked to share their photos in order to win a prize. Photos will appear on Flickr, and can be shared on Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr.

Local events and public information forums will take place in communities across Canada.
