Last Friday, May 3, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released their Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR). The report contained two articles of note for the arthritis community. First, a report on walking among adults with arthritis was released. The report, State-Specific Prevalence of Walking Among Adults With Arthritis – United States, 2011, looks at national data from the 2011 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS). Second, an announcement was made in the May 3 MMWR that May 2013 is Arthritis Awareness Month. To learn more about Arthritis Awareness Month, also known as Arthritis Action Month, please visit the Faces of Arthritis webpage.
