Review for American College of Rheumatology Research & Education Foundation, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After 8 years of disability as a result of Rheumatoid arthritis, three years ago I began to feel great and my rheumatologist suggested that I become involved with WITHIN OUR REACH: FINDING A CURE FOR RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS, a project of the ACR Research and Education Foundation. What an outstanding experience it has been!! The employees of the organization, as well as the many medical doctors and researchers are professional, extremely knowledgeable, and very compassionate--I have 8 artificial joints and get around reasonably well, but they would wait on me hand and foot if I would allow it.

We need to get the word out to all RA patients about this excellent organization. Thus, the ACR should add additional employees.

Role:  Volunteer & I have coordinated meetings in which the research and its findings are presented.
