Welcome to the CDC Arthritis Press room, a resource for reporters, news producers, and broadcasters seeking public health information on arthritis. On this page you will find an Arthritis Overview, Simple Steps for People with Arthritis, and About This Newsroom.
If there is any additional content that we can provide to assist you in your coverage of arthritis, please contact CDC Media Relations at (404) 639-3286.

Are you surprised by any of these statements? If so, you’re not alone. Most of us don’t realize the significant and serious impact arthritis has on a person’s quality of life, our country’s economy, and the health of our nation. It is more than “just aches and pains.”
