Arthritis is an unacceptable burden that affects 1.2 million Arizonans, including 6,000 children. The Arthritis Foundation believes it is crucial to create community partnerships to improve lives through leadership in the prevention, control and cure of arthritis. The Arthritis Foundation Arizona Office’s annual Community Partner of the Year Award honors the outstanding contributions a local organization makes towards improving the lives of those affected by arthritis. This award recognizes partners in Arizona who are leading the way to conquer arthritis through increased education, outreach, research, advocacy, and other vital programs and services.
The Community Partner of the Year Award allows the Arthritis Foundation to recognize a community organization that has a vested mutual interest in extending the reach of resources available to Arizonans to reduce the pain, disability, cost and impact of arthritis. The support of this organization allows the Arthritis Foundation to effectively carry out its mission- to improve lives through leadership in the prevention, control, and cure of arthritis.
