I’ve recently began blogging with The RA Connection, as well as doing some admin and community management work with this wonderful site.
I urge you all to join if you have RA, PsA, OA, Lupus, or AS. It is free, safe, secure, and easy to use — a great place for Community, Content, and Connection — and a nice way to commiserate with others who live with rheumatoid arthritis and similar illnesses.
The community forum is friendly, fully-moderated, and easy-to-use. You’ll meet other users with RA and more.
I’d recommend joining, but if you aren’t ready to join, you can view News & Features, check out the blog, or sign up for TheRAConnection Newsletter to receive the latest news, useful tips, and feature articles.
Still curious about what theRAConnection entails? Read on.
Founded in 2012 the rheumatoid & arthritis connection (theRAConnection) was created to provide award-winning, educational content and community directly to patients with rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis and lupus directly or through leading Physician Clinics and advocates.
