Children have arthritis too. In September 2014, the McCaig Institute for Bone and Joint Health, University of Calgary partnered with TELUS Spark and the Alberta Children's Hospital to facilitate an art workshop for children with arthritis. The young participants were able to express the challenges of what it's like to live with arthritis.

Expressions of Arthritis took place on Saturday, September 20 at TELUS Spark.
