EmpowHER Offers FREE Insight, Resources and Support for Millions of Women Suffering With Arthritis Resources are Offered in Support of Arthritis Awareness Month in May
SCOTTSDALE, AZ — (Marketwire) — 05/04/2010 — EmpowHER, a health media company for women, is offering free access to world-class health information and a community of experts and advocates to the millions of women suffering from arthritis — an inflammation of the joints accompanied by pain, swelling and stiffness.
According to the Arthritis Foundation, 46 million Americans are affected by arthritis or related conditions. Arthritis encompasses more than 100 conditions, most of which affect substantially more women than men. Osteoporosis, for example, affects roughly 28 million people in the U.S., four of five of them women.
“Arthritis is not something you should have to live with and just suffer through, like many do,” said Michelle King Robson, Founder, Chairman and CEO of EmpowHER. “Because education is so vital to understanding the condition, we have assembled a team of experts as well as very personal stories of hope and recovery in one convenient location to make it easy for women to advocate for themselves. There is no need for anyone to suffer silently with this disease.”
For women suffering with arthritis, EmpowHER has created a dedicated resource page where women can find topical medical articles, videos and guides to additional online resources.
