New Way RA

There is a new online talk show, New Way RA, that deals strictly with the health and well-being for people living with RA. The show is hosted by Deborah Norville and provides practical advice and information for adults living with RA. Deborah and expert guests discuss and share information about relevant topics through a variety of segments, including: health, nutrition, fitness, relationships and work/career management. Visitors to the site can view the entire show online, listen to real-life anecdotes from people living with RA, register to receive a free copy of the DVD, and access resources for more information. The project is sponsored by Centocor Ortho Biotech Inc.

Currently, over 1 million Americans have rheumatoid arthritis -- 70 percent of whom are women.

I watched the first episode and expected it to be an infomercial for a RA drug since it is sponsored by a drug company, but was surprised. Personally, I am glad to see any type of show calling attention to and attempting to help people with RA.

You can watch the show and learn more at http://www.newwayra.com/.
