From 2013 to now…

Since the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society (NRAS) was founded in 2001, one of our key aims is to raise public understanding and awareness of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) as distinct from other forms of arthritis. Whilst we have come a long way, there still remains a significant challenge in clarifying the misconceptions based around RA. In 2013, NRAS started a campaign called Rheumatoid Arthritis Awareness Week (RAAW) to raise awareness of the condition and eliminate these misconceptions by educating and informing friends, families, employers of those with RA and the general population about what rheumatoid arthritis truly is.
