The Arthritis Society has launched an Online Education Portal for Canadians living with arthritis.
The official announcement is below.
The first of its kind in Canada
We proud to announce the launch of our new online education portal, dedicated to giving Canadians living with arthritis with the knowledge and tools they need to help self-manage their arthritis.
The first course available on the portal is "Overcome Fatigue: a 7-step Program", with other courses to follow in the coming months. Fatigue is sometimes referred to as the "silent symptom" of arthritis, and can make day-to-day activities even more difficult for people living with arthritis. Fatigue is identified almost as frequently as pain as the biggest challenge of living with arthritis, which makes being able to manage your fatigue so important.
The education portal can be found at education.arthritis.ca, and is available completely free of charge. We invite you to try it out and learn how you can cope with arthritis-related fatigue.
As part of Arthritis Awareness Month, I will be doing an interview on my radio show on Monday September 30th at 2:00pm EST. The details of that show are below.
Jeff Aarssen was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis at the age of 21. As the vice-president of group retirement services, sales and marketing and wealth management for Great-West Life, London Life and Canada Life, Jeff has not let his arthritis prevent a flourishing career. He is a passionate public speaker on his journey with arthritis and managing the disease naturally.
Lorna Catrambone is the Manager of Community Engagement in Halton Peel. She has been with The Society since 2003, working to raise the profile of the organization in the community, and to raise funds for The Arthritis Society’s various programs and research initiatives.
The Arthritis Society is Canada’s principal health charity providing vital information and programs to the millions of Canadians with arthritis. Since its founding, The Society has been the largest non-government funder of arthritis research in Canada, investing more than $185 million in projects that have led to breakthroughs in the diagnosis, treatment and care of people with arthritis.
