The American College of Rheumatology (ACR) has received funding from the CDC for a five-year project period to implement and evaluate comprehensive and sustainable awareness and education campaign that reaches diagnosed adult and pediatric patients, their support systems, primary care providers and rheumatologists. This grassroots campaign will be implemented through the development and expansion of a sustainable partnership network that supports awareness and communication efforts.

NACDD is collaborating with the ACR, as part of this network development, to convene three state workshops, in partnership with state health department chronic disease units, community based organizations and state offices of health equity.

A request for applications will be released in March, with workshops to be held June 1–August 31, 2016.
