Arthritis Support Network launched: 2018
Arthritis Support Network Leader: Talisa Type of Arthritis: Rheumatoid Arthritis
About this Arthritis Support Network:
My vision this this support network is to bring much needed resources and awareness to the Buffalo & Erie County area. I plan to passionately and deliberately offer resources and support groups to my peers and their families to better assist them in dealing with this and other underlying conditions caused by arthritis.
I have lived in the Western New York pretty much my entire life. I have worked in the Community & Human services field for 20 years now. I have worked with primarily with children and their families in several capacities such as overseeing children’s programming, servicing and assisting through direct care work for at-risk youth, youth detention services, assisting families affected by substance abuse, facilitating training for families as well as staff, and planning Youth Services within my County to name a few. I have several community volunteer responsibilities to other agencies as well.
To my knowledge to date I am the first generation of my family to be diagnosed with Severe Rheumatoid Arthritis. I became ill suddenly and was officially diagnosed almost six years ago.
I am leading an Arthritis Support Network in Buffalo / Erie County NY to provide much needed support and resources to my peers and their families dealing with this and like conditions.
