Certain conditions affect people at different stages of their lives. The NIAMS has free, easy-to-read information to help kids and young adults to stay healthy and manage conditions of the bones, joints, muscles, and skin at any age. Click on the resources below to read, download, or order this information.

These are just a few suggestions to get you started. We may have other fact sheets and publications to meet the needs of the people you serve. Many of these resources are also available in Spanish, Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese. For a complete list of NIAMS publications, please visit the NIAMS Publication Ordering System.
