This free event welcomes all children and young people with JIA, and their families to enjoy a fun packed and educational afternoon. Family Fun Days are a great opportunity to meet others with JIA and share practical tips as well as patient experience - all of which can make a huge difference to a family where a child has just been diagnosed with JIA.
Come along and see old friends, and make some new ones! We have photobooth fun and lots of arts and crafts. There will also be educational and informative sessions from local health care professionals on topics such as how to get moving with safe activities, school and education etc. There’ll be a Q & A session too.
The sessions with the Healthcare Professionals (HCPs) are designed to be interactive, enlightening and give an opportunity for everyone to share what works well and what doesn’t for their child and their family.
The day will also feature a ‘Design a Logo’ competition wherein participants will be asked to design a logo for a new networked service for children and young people with JIA that is launching soon across East of England. Participants can design their logos at the event, or prepare them beforehand and bring it in on the day (preferred).
This new service will consist of skilled professionals across East England who will look after children and young people with JIA. As the service doesn’t have definitive name yet, we’re open to name suggestions too! Here’s a few ideas to start you off and help you with your logo design:
- East of England Network for Paediatric and Adolescent Rheumatology
- East of England Network for Rheumatology in Children and Young People
- Children and young people’s East of England Rheumatology Service
- Children and young people’s Rheumatology Network East of England
