We provide remote support to Navajo Area primary care providers who wish to develop expertise in the recognition and management of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA).
Expanding Access to Care
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is the most common form of autoimmune arthritis, affecting more than 1.3 million Americans. The Navajo Nation is especially hard-hit, with nearly 5x the national prevalence of RA, and a significant shortage of local rheumatology providers.
Early diagnosis and treatment of RA can prevent substantial pain, deformity, and disability. Our project uses an established educational model, Project ECHO, to provide remote support to Navajo Area primary care providers who wish to develop expertise in the recognition and management of RA, with the primary goal of improving RA disease-associated outcomes and reducing health disparities.
