10th Annual National Gathering (GX)


Arthritis Introspective and the Arthritis Foundation are proud to present

the 10th Annual National Gathering  (GX)

Kansas City, KS on June 9-11, 2017

Registration closes on May 30!

Since our extended family first got together a decade ago, we’ve come a long way.  A lot has changed – hair styles, what we wear, the phones we carry.  But one thing is the same: There’s still a group of people who understand exactly what you face daily, living with arthritis.  And now there are more of us.  We are 10 Years and Growing.  Keep growing with us – and encourage someone else to be part of this life-changing experience.

The National Gathering is an educational and fun weekend filled with both professional and volunteer-led sessions that touch on a variety of topics - from alternative therapies to emotional health and much more! These sessions will help you learn, grow, and share triumphs and challenges. Loved ones and caregivers are welcome and encouraged to attend.
