Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month

Posted by on July 11th, 2016 Posted in: Consumer Health


You might think arthritis is something only grandparents can get, but it is a condition that affects people of all ages. Did you know there are seven types of Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis?

  • Systemic
  • Oligoarticular
  • Polyarticular, rheumatoid factor negative
  • Polyarticular, rheumatoid factor positive
  • psoriatic
  • enthesitis-related
  • Undifferentiated

For activities and resources to help teach kids and teens all about JIA:

  • KidsHealth from Nemours offers more in-depth information about the different types of JIA.
  • Visit the kids/teens page of the Arthritis Foundation website for coloring pages, tips from kids and teens, and stories about kids with juvenile arthritis.
  • From the office of Women’s Health: “The Best Bones Forever! Campaign offers girls fun activities, quizzes, and recipes to encourage girls to get active and eat more foods with calcium and vitamin D.”
