February 2nd is Rheumatoid Awareness Day, and we need your help to spread the word and heighten awareness! Click here for list of ways that you can get involved. Use the hashtag #RheumDay on social media as you share awareness images, our petition for a National Proclamation, a snapshot of your local Awareness Day billboards, or photos and videos of yourself showing how YOU are participating and helping to bring awareness.

This year, we are asking you to share your own personal photos of how you are celebrating rheumatoid disease awareness, and your own videos telling the world why we need this special day of recognition.
