Free Arthritis Lectures in Arizona



What: Free Coffee Hours (Arthritis Lectures)

When: May 18 after the church services (each of which will last about 90 minutes)

Where:

  • Friendship Missionary Baptist Church, 850 N. 11th Ave.: Service begins at 11 a.m.
  • AZUSA, 7474 E. Broadway, Suite 100: Service begins at 10 a.m.
  • Mt. Calvary Missionary Baptist Church, 210 E. Lester St.: Service begins at 9:45 a.m.

In lieu of May as the National Arthritis Month, churches in Tucson, Arizona have teamed up with with the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) and the Arthritis Foundation — coming up with free Coffee Hour events.

Such events will educate Arizona residents about the causes of, risk factors for developing, and options for arthritis – practically everything there is to know about arthritis.

Refreshments will be served and the lectures will start right after the church service.

The events are open to anyone who is at risk for developing or has arthritis and/or family members/friends with arthritis.

According to the Arthritis Foundation, rheumatoid arthritis affects 1.3 million Americans annually, while 27 million people are living with osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis among the black, Asian, Hispanic and white populations.

Information campaign is crucial. People should know about arthritis as it is being called the “coming epidemic”. It is good to know that even churches are getting involved to disseminate information.

On the web, I recommend the following websites for comprehensive information about arthritis:

  1. The Arthritis Foundation
  2. Medline Plus on Arthritis
  3. MedicineNet on Arthritis
  4. Arthritis at About
  5. WebMD Arthritis Health Center

For people that have no access to the web, it pays to have services via their local communities in order to get informed on various conditions, not only arthritis.

  1. Hi, Looks like you are pretty well organised there in Arizona. It’s a bit far for me to come. So I was wondering if anyone has experience of hot and cold treatment for arthritis. I have seen the Pain Management Therapy advertised on www.arthritis-remedies.org and wanted to ask if anyone has used this or similar treatments
