Children who complain of aching joints could have arthritis. Juvenile arthritis is a painful, sometimes debilitating disease that affects some 200,000 American children.

The Utah Chapter of the Arthritis Foundation is sponsoring a family support group to provide education and encouragement for families of children with arthritis. The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 23, at Primary Children's Medical Center in the Rehabilitation Commons Area on the second floor. For information, call 486-4993.
