About this Arthritis Support Network:
For the San Francisco Support Network we plan on cultivating a strong and inclusive environment for adults with rheumatic diseases and their friends and family. This will be an activity and education heavy group guiding adults through the complexities of managing adulthood with arthritis and rheumatic diseases. We will also be open to friends, significant others, and family to help enlighten those close to people living with the disease. We envision for everyone to feel safe and confident. We want to create an environment where everyone feels accepted and loved.
Hey, my names Katie and I will be one of your Arthritis Support Network Leaders. I have been involved with the Arthritis Foundation since I was 9 years old and I have polyarticular spondyloarthropathy. More importantly, I am a student studying communications at the University of San Francisco, a NAUI Divemaster, and a great baker. I love the ocean and know the benefits of nature. I have a lot of knowledge about living with Arthritis but what I really focus on is living in spite of it. I live my life with passion and positive energy and will bring that to the activities we have planned. I hope to see you at our get-togethers!
I am leading a network in my area because it's needed. I already am a part of a great arthritis community from camps when I was a child and want to give that gift to others.
I’m a 19 year old Student at Foothill College. In addition to that I am the Co-Sports Director of KZSU Stanford Radio.
I am joining Katie in leading a group because I want to inspire those who have a form of arthritis to be the best people they can be. I’ve always loved the programs and I really can't wait to get started. I want to help educate the outside community on the ongoings of adults living with Arthritis.
