"Initiatives like GeneRAtions will bring awareness to this serious illness which can affect entire families; and in turn, may give rheumatologists the opportunity to prevent the debilitating effects of RA."

The population was wholly examined and further sub-segmented by the length of time RA patients had been diagnosed or time that physicians had been practicing. Specific subsets consisted of individuals living with RA or a physician practicing for 10 years or less, 11-20 years, and 21 years or more. Each of the survey's generational breakouts revealed the differences or similarities in experiences that people living with RA can have depending on the amount of time living with the disease since diagnosis or the amount of time a physician has been practicing and caring for patients with RA.
