|Subject:||"Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis Month" Resolution|
|In the near future, I plan to introduce a resolution designating July, 2018 as "Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis Month" in Pennsylvania.
Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) is an auto-inflammatory disease of unknown origin and is the most common type of arthritis in children. Nearly 300,000 children, from infants to teenagers, have some form of arthritis. It is important to educate the public about the symptoms of this disease in an effort to increase the rate of successful treatment.
Please join me in supporting this effort. Thank you.
