News & Announcements
September 2019 marks the 4th Annual Rheumatic Disease Awareness Month (RDAM), a national awareness event sponsored by the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) and its public awareness campaign, Simple Tasks™. RDAM was created to raise awareness about the 100+ conditions under the umbrella of rheumatic disease. Rheumatic diseases are painful autoimmune and inflammatory diseases that cause the immune system to attack a person’s joints, muscles, bones, and/or organs. Rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, lupus, Sjogren’s syndrome, gout, scleroderma, and psoriatic arthritis are some of the most commonly known. Chances are, if you don’t have a rheumatic disease, you know somebody who does. More than 54 million American adults – one in four – have been diagnosed with one. Learn more at SimpleTasks.org!
