RA is an autoimmune disease that progressively attacks the joints, heart, liver and kidneys, causing pain and permanent disability if left untreated. There are 2.5 times as many women as there are men with RA. Fortunately, the Arthritis Foundation offers resources for the 1.3 million Americans living with RA. Let’s Talk RA is a program designed to give people with RA the resources they need to better connect with their rheumatologist to treat their RA.
