Juvenile Arthritis: The Ultimate Teen Guide – A Review & Interview with Kelly Rouba

We're doing something new on MyRACentral - this week, we launched an area on the site for teens and young adults living with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (when I first got it 40+ years ago, it was called Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis). There isn't a lot of information and meeting places for that age group out there and I'm very proud that we are creating a space for them to connect.

The launch piece is a review of a book about JIA an interview with its author:

"In the US, 300,000 children and teens live with
Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis or JIA (previously known as Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis), but most of the resources about the disease is geared towards parents. Until last year, when Juvenile Arthritis: The Ultimate Teen Guide (It Happened to Me) by Kelly Rouba was published."

The rest of that post is here (it's a great book) and tomorrow, I'm posting about body image, self-esteem and identity. I can't wait to see where this goes...
