Last year, more than 200 youth across the state and NC military installations did Our Nationwide Outreach and Focusing on Military Families programs. The goal of increasing awareness to help children, parents and communities in need all over the North Carolina was successfully met. This year we added another level to our outreach programs.
In addition to the military communities, we are focusing on the native indigenous populations in North Carolina. This year we are underway in our campaign of public awareness for underserved communities affected by pediatric arthritis and rheumatologic conditions. We all know exercise is “good for us,” but the benefits can even be greater for children with arthritis – as can the downsides of being physically inactive. That’s why it's especially crucial for children with arthritis to keep moving.
