About Us

The Oregon Arthritis Program focuses on improving the lives of people with arthritis and addressing those who are at risk for developing arthritis. Our goal is to reduce the impact of arthritis in Oregon through a public health approach, working in collaboration with partners in the public and private sectors.

The Oregon Arthritis Program is part of the Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention Section in the Center for Prevention and Health Promotion.

Looking at the generational spectrum of people's lives is important for the prevention and proper treatment of arthritis. The idea is to create new possibilities for resources and joint partnerships to provide successful educational tools and programs in Oregon.

Oregon Arthritis Action Plan

The Arthritis Program worked closely with the Arthritis Network (formerly known as the Arthritis Coalition) to craft a statewide Action Plan that can be used as a template for future planning.

The plan's goal is to expand awareness, education and resources to everyone in Oregon and touch as many people's lives as possible. Read the Oregon Arthritis Action Plan (pdf).
