Having worked with so many people, I have heard almost every conceivable question pertaining to arthritis and as such, with the help of Rheumatologists, I am well-versed in providing the best possible answers. 

Do you have questions about arthritis and on how best to manage it?  

No need to wonder, just ask me! 

Hello and Welcome!

My name is Julie Martin but you may call me Julz (as my family and close friends do), I work as a Community Liaison Officer for the Arthritis Foundation of South Africa and I am here to answer any arthritis related questions you may have - so feel free to ask me anything.

I have accumulated a broad depth of experience in this field through my 24 years of work; which involves supporting, educating and guiding those living with arthritis - through the process to leading an improved lifestyle and overall well being.


In a nutshell

We are the only body in our country that provides non-medical support for arthritis patients, their families and carers.

To do this we are involved in a wide range of education and support programmes, in providing access to information about  diseases, and by advocating the interests of people with arthritis in government, medical and media circles.
