Today I attended the Women on the Move annual luncheon for the Arthritis Foundation where they honored 4 special women who have made a difference. My friend, Andrea Eisenberg, Esq., SPHR and Managing Director of Preferred Transition Resources was one of the very well deserved honorees.
What an inspiring and wonderful luncheon that was packed on this very snowy day in March– to show how many people are working toward more research and therapies for this condition that afflicts so many. To learn more- visit www.arthritis.org
Women on the Move offers a year-round opportunity for women to engage
in the mission of the Arthritis Foundation by providing educational,
social and networking opportunities leading up to the Annual Women on
the Move Luncheon.
A Woman on the Move is an extraordinary woman who balances family
life, career and community involvement. They are "on the move"
professionally, personally and philanthropically. It is especially
important for women to remain "on the move" because although arthritis
can affect anyone, regardless of race, gender or age, the statistics are
clear- over 60 percent of the nearly 50 million people who have
arthritis are female. Women with arthritis, compared to men, account for
a greater percentage of visits to physician's offices,
hospitalizations, and disability claims.
The New York Chapter of the Arthritis Foundation has taken a
leadership role in women's healthcare and in ensuring optimal care for
people living with arthritis- the majority of whom are women.
