Early RA Support and Education Program

The Early RA Support and Education Program has been developed specially for people recently diagnosed with RA and Early RA. 

Participants meet for a free, four-session series which presents essential information about RA and RA treatment. Following the lectures, a discussion with others also coping with a new RA diagnosis is co-facilitated by a social worker and a rheumatology nurse. 
Pre-screening and registration are required for attendance.

When:  Meets monthly on Mondays from 5:00 - 7:00pm
Where:  Hospital for Special Surgery, Richard L. Menschel Education Center, 2nd Floor, 535 E. 70th St., New York, NY
