               IN RECOGNITION OF NATIONAL ARTHRITIS MONTH

                                 ______
                                 

                          HON. PATRICK MEEHAN

                            of pennsylvania

                    in the house of representatives

                         Thursday, May 23, 2013

  Mr. MEEHAN. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in recognition of National 
Arthritis Month. Arthritis is a disease that affects more than 50 
million Americans of all ages including some residents of 
Pennsylvania's 7th District. Arthritis includes more than 100 joint 
diseases that can affect the entire body, causing severe pain for many. 
While questions still remain, I am encouraged by the cutting edge 
research being conducted on arthritis, particularly at the NIH. Early 
diagnosis and disease management can help prevent long term pain for 
individuals living with arthritis and their families. As May draws to a 
close, let us continue to raise awareness of arthritis, remembering the 
individuals living with the disease every day.
