The Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce (VACC)
announced the launch of its Driveway Assistance initiative
which, through participating service stations, will
provide special assistance 'at the pump' for drivers
who are older, are frail or who have a disability.
Legislative update following the establishment of the
109th Congress. With bipartisan support in both chambers,
the Arthritis Prevention Control and Cure Act made great
gains and ended with 217 cosponsors in the House and
49 in Senate.
Our priorities are that arthritis and joint disorder
patients have access to all approved drugs and treatments
so that each patient can receive the treatment which
is best for him or her and to provide the knowledge
of all available treatments so that each patient can
work in partnership with his or her physician to find
the best treatment for that patient.
