Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder that causes the body’s immune system to attack its own tissue, including the joints and joint linings. While RA is a progressive disease that currently cannot be cured, there are a number of treatments and medications that can slow the progress of the disease.

Dr. Charles Radis of Maine Coast Memorial Hospital’s Mary Dow Center will discuss diagnosis, symptoms and treatments, and answer questions from attendees. Arthritis Support Network Leader Karen Hawes will provide information about local support options for people with RA and their families, and discuss how support can help make RA more manageable.
