I love it when I find a new, reliable resource in the fight against RA and other inflammatory diseases. I should have already known about the International Foundation for Autoimmune & Autoinflammatory Arthritis (IFAA) because I’ve met some of their members with whom I’ve been quite impressed.
I ran across the IFAA in conjunction with an RA study group which published a couple of items from the IFAA.
- The first is a document with tips on verifying information and help stop it from spreading. It’s called, “I heard unicorns cause RA” and can be found here: http://nebula.wsimg.com/64719d5d4b57fd0fe13b48e2666e5560?AccessKeyId=9BD8916C246CAC51B04E&disposition=0&alloworigin=1
- The second is a program that allows us to report false information or misunderstandings in publications. This is a program run by volunteers that follow up on the materials to help get them corrected or retracted. It can be found here: http://www.ifautoimmunearthritis.org/media-awareness-hotline.html
Here’s hoping that you have the resources you need in your personal battle against this disease. Thanks for checking in.
