About this Live Yes! Connect Group:
Our meetings vary in topics, from guest speakers or just receiving support from the members of this group. Diet, exercise, health and legislative updates are all important to arthritis patients. Group members' spouses, significant others and/or family members are welcome to attend the meetings. In 2019 we will meet every other month. Through emails, I update everyone on what is happening with our group as well Arthritis Foundation events. We also have teams for the Walk to Cure Arthritis (held in spring) and the Jingle Bell Run (held in winter.) Please join our group so that you are on the email list to receive updates and meeting dates.
I have 2 types of Arthritis. I have OA in my left knee . I also have Polymyaglia Rheumatica (PMR). I was the 2017 Adult Honoree for the Sacramento Walk to Cure Arthritis. I am also active in the Advocacy Summit meetings that take place every year at our State Capital. I just recently acquired the Arthritis Support Network group leader Advocacy certification which will allow me to be a voice for arthritis patients on the federal level. In March 2018 I went to Capitol Hill along with other Advocates to meet with our legislators about Arthritis. I am also a Community Outreach Volunteer and speak at various events in our area bringing awareness and education about Arthritis. I am the OA forum moderator for the Live Yes! online community. In October 2018, I acquired my Platinum Advocacy Ambassador status. Beginning in 2019, I will be on the Reader Advisory panel for the Arthritis Today magazine.
