Arthritis is Canada’s most prevalent chronic condition (1 in 5) for which there is no cure. Osteoporosis affects over 1.4 million Canadians, and conditions like these can have severe long-term implications on patients if they are not caught early and/or managed properly.

The Bones & Joints campaign aims to work with leaders and experts in the field to educate Canadians on signs and symptoms, the best resources and tools available to empower them to advocate for their health and stimulate patient-care team conversations – thus increasing the likelihood of early detection and better condition management.
