Live May Events: Arthritis Awareness Month

Posted on April 21, 2021

For the first time, MyHealthTeams is bringing together four communities impacted by arthritis to share perspectives, find solutions, and hear from others who have walked a similar path. We’ve lined up a slate of experts who will help you gain a better understanding of life with arthritis, and empower you to better navigate your treatments and lifestyle decisions. Join members of MySpondylitisTeam, MyPsoriasisTeam, MyLupusTeam, and myRAteam for three interactive events focused on mind, body, and soul best practices.

See below for the full schedule planned for May. Send your questions for these events to arthritisawareness@myhealthteams.com. We look forward to seeing you there!
