As the ed-in-chief of Arthritis Today, can I say you are so right? Be sure to check out the cover of our next issue (available mid- to late October). I think you’ll like it. We’ve been trying some new things this past year, and welcome feedback. Really! Send a note any time with comments and ideas. We love to hear from people. You can use the “contact the editors” link on BTW, RA Guy, you do a great job with your blog!


Thank you for your response! I look forward to seeing what is included in the next issue of Arthritis Today.

A lot of great comments have been included, both here on my blog and in a discussion thread at RA Connect, in regards to more accurate representations of arthritis amongst men and women, adults and kids. I hope this is just the beginning of a fruitful conversation between this part of the rheumatoid arthritis community and Arthritis Today.

    I am so very pleased that you got a response so quickly- and that they realize the problem and are addressing it is WONDERFUL!

    this is so great…i have been wanting to write to Arthritis Today telling them the exact same thing except that they should have more KIDS on the cover. Imagine how that would shock America. Do you know how many moms and people my age have written to me about getting RA when they were in elementary school and being totally freaked out? Why not put those kids on the cover??? It would do wonders to ease the isolation that many parents feel when their child is diagnosed. I completely understand where you are coming from, RA Guy. Thank you for writing this letter. I hope to see more men and children on the cover in the coming months. I challenge Arthritis Today to have their covers representing us by the new year!
