Last weekend Dr. Gretchen Hunter, Clinical Neuropsychologist, was a guest speaker at the Arthritis Foundation: Juvenile Arthritis Day. This event provided a safe and secure experience for families of children and teens with juvenile arthritis and childhood rheumatic diseases. Families and kids were able to gain a greater understanding of juvenile arthritis, connect with others, increase independence and self-confidence and discover new skills and interests.
This event wasn’t ALL business. Dr. Hunter reports that all families had a great time, including her own! Having the opportunity to create awareness, have fun and be part of the community is right up our “alley.” Click here for more information about local events sponsored by the Arthritis Foundation.
