The mission of the University of Arizona Arthritis Center Friends (UAACF) is to build community support for the University of Arizona Arthritis Center through education, public awareness, and community involvement.
The University of Arizona Arthritis Center improves the lives of Arizonans who have one of the many forms of arthritis. This is accomplished through clinical and basic research, empowering patients in taking charge of their lifestyle, and educating care providers and scientists to develop and apply more effective therapies.
