Event description

Description

Are you a young adult living with arthritis? Are your school, work, relationships and everyday activities being affected and impacted by your arthritis? Do you want to talk to other young adults who know what it's like to live with arthritis? Then come check out The Social Crew!

The Social Crew is a casual, fun group that meets monthly in the Greater Vancouver area. This group is led by young adults with arthritis and is geared towards young adults who have either lived with arthritis since childhood, or been diagnosed in early adulthood. They deal with the daily effects of the many forms of arthritis, lupus or fibromyalgia and they understand what life is like through the arthritis lens.

The Social Crew strives to foster an environment of understanding, encouragement and empowerment by bringing together people living with arthritis to provide mutual support and positive coping strategies for living well with the disease. Loved ones and friends are more than welcome and we would be happy to hear from other young adults that are not in the Greater Vancouver area to discuss and support each other with arthritis issues.

If you are interested in learning more about this group, you can join them on Facebook (Young Adults with Arthritis in BC) or at their Meet and Greet event on Sunday, June 11 from 2-4pm at the Mary Pack Arthritis Centre, 895 West 10th Avenue in Vancouver. Please come to the 3rd Floor.

This group is for you if:

  1. you are 18 or over and have any type of arthritis
  2. you no longer fit into a children's arthritis treatment program and you aren't sure what to do next - we will be your team post 18!
  3. you want to be able to have honest discussions with people who share similar experiences and are of a similar age

To sign up for the Meet and Greet (we need to know how many of you are coming - light snacks, tea and coffee will be provided!) please contact The Arthritis Society at jdhaliwal@arthritis.ca or 1-866-414-7766.
