Campaign, activities organised by the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society (NRAS), in collaboration with British Society of Rheumatology

The EULAR Campaign, Don’t Delay, Connect Today activities organised by the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society (NRAS), in collaboration with British Society of Rheumatology comprise and impressive public stunt in Manchester.

A 12ft hand event in the shopping mall in Manchester will happen, so that all the footage can be used on / shown on Social media and the website for World Arthritis Day.

The aim of the event is that people will be able to visit the stand on RA and JIA; speak to clinicians from the area who will be supporting the day; if possible to have their hands scanned with ultrasound this will enable us to raise awareness that there is more going on inside a joint than just “bones’’. There is a plan to have video footage running on screens as well to draw attention. There will be press releases sent ahead to engage both national and local media including regional TV and radio as well as print media.
