07.01.17: The IPTF is excited to be working with the NACDD and CDC to promote the Walk with Ease Program(WWE). WWE, by the Arthritis Foundation, is designed for people with or without arthritis – young and old, male and female, fit and not-so-fit. It is a program to help people living with arthritis better manage their pain and is also ideal for people without arthritis who want to make walking a regular habit. Shown to reduce pain and increase balance and walking pace, Walk with Ease provides participants with the information and tools they need to develop a safe exercise routine that fits their unique needs and goals. The IPTF will be rolling out the details of this program along with a call for participants in August. We will be looking to our IPTA members to help promote and facilitate the WWE program. Stay tuned for more details!
