October 12 is World Arthritis Day

October 11, 2011

Arthritis causes pain and often disability to one in every seven Americans.  Find out how the numbers can work for you.  You’ll find friendship and support when you join the Arthritis Support Group at Gibson Area Hospital & Health Services.  Topics of discussion include pain management, diet, and exercise.  All ages are welcome and encouraged to attend.


Meetings are held the first Monday of every month from 6:30pm to 8:00pm at the hospital.  Call Julie Bowen at 217-784-2259 for more information or to register.  


Visit www.worldarthritisday.org and be inspired by the great campaigns and events people with rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs) and organizations are running to celebrate today.
