livingbetterbannerSaturday, 12th October is World Arthritis Day 2013

EULAR PARE’s theme for 2013 – 2014 is Healthy Ageing: growing up and growing older with a rheumatic or musculoskeletal disease. The slogan for this campaign is: “Living Better, ageing well.

On the WAD website you can find a guidelines and a graphic toolkit under the “Tools for You / For organisations” section. You can use the graphics to create your own promotional materials.

EULAR has launched two major activities on the WAD website as part of the Healthy Ageing campaign: Get Active! and Self –management and Motivation.

Get Active! features seven different types of physical activity suitable for people with RMDs and a guide to physical activity and exercise. The guide and factsheets for each activity are available on the web for download in English with artwork and design templates for organisations to adapt and translate their own versions.

The first of the Healthy Living topics, which go live in phases, was Physical Activity and Exercise. The second topic, Self Management and Motivation, has just gone live – check it out!
