Join Us for the First Annual Rheumatic Disease Awareness Month

Jennie Garth

To kick off Rheumatic Disease Awareness Month, Simple Tasks and the American College of Rheumatology teamed up with Jennie Garth, actress and arthritis advocate, to produce a public service announcement about rheumatic disease symptoms and treatment options. Please watch and share this video message with your communities during RDAM this September.


About Simple Tasks

The American College of Rheumatology’s (ACR) Simple Tasks campaign aims to raise awareness of the severe impact of rheumatic diseases and highlight the healthcare policy issues that affect patients’ ability to access high-quality care. By educating patients about the healthcare issues affecting rheumatology care, and providing tools that make it easy for patients to become advocates for their care, we seek to ensure that people who are affected by these diseases are able to receive the proper medical care they need from rheumatologists.
