Parent Testimonials

My children and I went to Jam Jub for the first time this year. It was amazing! My children are STILL talking about it and asking when we can go back. The kids activities were great and the expertise offered to the parents through small groups and discussions was invaluable.

- Elizabeth

We have attended Jambalaya Jubilee every year for the last six years and each and every year we have learned important information that allows us to manage our sons JIA. The volunteers, staff, and programs are well organized and interesting for attendees of any age. Children and Arthritis has been an invaluable resource to our family since our diagnosis 8 years ago.

Children and Arthritis has been a wonderful experience for our family for many years!!!
