Autoimmune Portrait Project by Jodi McKee
My hope for this project is to show the world that there are a lot of younger people out there who are dealing with complicated and often painful chronic illnesses. Also, I think it is so important for the newly diagnosed to be able to see all of these beautiful, happy faces and know that they are not alone.

Our unique approach, Connected Care, is about honing the collective expertise of our specialists and allied health professionals to offer holistic diagnosis and treatment. This approach has come about because our main objective has always been to treat the whole person, not just the site of pain. We achieve this by encouraging our specialists and allied health professionals to work together in connecting the treatment of our clients’ health issues where appropriate.

World Arthritis Day
World Arthritis Day was established in 1996 by Arthritis and Rheumatism International (ARI) and is celebrated each year on 12 October. Now, people with rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs) from around the world can join together to make their voices heard on this day. World Arthritis Day is an ideal focus for organisations to raise awareness of issues affecting people with RMDs and for individuals to support campaigns. Although 12 October is the official World Arthritis Day, this is a year round campaign.
