The Strong Woman's Approach to Managing Rheumatoid Arthritis
Date:9/28/2011

ATLANTA and RED BANK, N.J., Sept. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Managing RA: The Strong Woman's Approach, is an online resource designed to educate and empower women living with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), launched today at HealthyWomen.org.  There are 1.3 million Americans living with RA, and women are two to three times more likely to develop the disease than men.  Managing RA: The Strong Woman's Approach provides practical solutions and exercise advice specifically designed to address some of the challenges faced by women with RA.

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune disease that mainly involves inflammation of the joints, including small joints in hands and feet.  RA can cause painful swelling that can interrupt daily activities and may eventually result in bone erosion and joint deformity if not adequately treated.  

The web-based initiative was created through a partnership between HealthyWomen, the nation's leading independent health information source for women, and UCB, Inc., a global biopharmaceutical leader in the research and development of medications to treat immunology disorders.  Managing RA: The Strong Woman's Approach is available on HealthyWomen.org and offers webcast videos with practical advice to help women with RA stay active and better understand their condition.  To view, download and share photos, videos and program materials, click here.

"As a trusted source of health information for women, HealthyWomen is thrilled to join UCB in creating this new program to fill the gap in educating women about RA," said HealthyWomen Executive Director Beth Battaglino Cahill, RN. "Now, women have a new place to turn for comprehensive advice, information and tools for living their healthiest life with RA."
