What information do you collect?
The information you provide will be entered into a computer data bank for use by medical researchers. Your name and any identifying information is removed from any data used for research. Researchers describe their findings in articles that are published in medical journals and in presentations at national and international meetings. That way, all doctors who treat arthritis are able to receive the benefit from the research. What they learn will help them to provide better medical care to people with arthritis and similar medical conditions.
