A Message from the President

Welcome to the Arthritis Health Professions Association website! I invite you to explore the site and learn the many benefits of belonging to a national organization dedicated to health professionals interested in arthritis care.

We are a dedicated group of professionals from across Canada who are passionate about improving the care of people with rheumatic diseases and we collaborate with other professional and patient organizations to promote public awareness of the needs of people living with arthritis.

Members receive a monthly email Newsbrief containing news and current articles related to arthritis care and links to educational and professional opportunities.   Educational webinars are offered throughout the year and we encourage our members to attend our annual pre-course where we have engaging and inspiring speakers. We award a research grant yearly and members are recognized for exceptional and innovative work in the field of arthritis care with awards given at our annual general meeting. Networking with like-minded professionals is a valuable benefit for our members.

As President of AHPA, I welcome input from members and other health professionals or patient advocacy groups interested in arthritis care. Please contact me at president@ahpa.ca if you have suggestions or questions.

I invite you to come join us on this exciting and rewarding journey!

Sue MacQueen
