Meet Forward—the new face and name of The National Databank for Rheumatic Diseases, the largest ongoing study of patients in the world.
 
Why Forward? Simply put, Forward is our organization’s core mission over the last 20 years—to advance research and discovery in Rheumatology and beyond through human connection and deep insight.
 
Studies have shown that patients who enroll in a registry live longer than those who don’t. This is what drives us. It is why we want to continue growing our databank and research, learning from the past to understand the future and to provide hope that one day, we can find a cure and enjoy a life free of pain.
 
We will be sharing more about Forward with you in the near future.
