In addition to featuring the New Way RA talk show, the companion website also features supplementary materials such as Ellie Krieger's recipes, Ellen Shmueli's exercises, and stories of everyday people living with RA.
New Way RA provides new, practical information in an accessible, online format for adults living with RA. The show also aims to raise awareness about RA, a chronic, inflammatory and potentially disabling condition that affects more than one million Americans, 70 percent of whom are women.
