What is Creaky Joints? 

The Global Healthy Living Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, based in Upper Nyack, New York, with the mission to improve the quality of life for people with chronic illness.

GHLF advocates for improved access to care at the community level, amplifying education and awareness efforts within its social media framework. Central to this advocacy are GHLF’s successes educating about the importance of diagnosis, early and innovative medical intervention, long-term lifestyle improvement with the goal of improved outcomes. Co-founded in 1999 by arthritis patient and advocate Seth Ginsberg (diagnosed with Spondyloarthropathy at age 13), and social entrepreneur Louis Tharp, GHLF includes disease-specific communities, the most visible being CreakyJoints, a network of more than 100,000 arthritis patients and caregivers in all 50 states, Western Europe, South America and Australia. Other disease areas of focus include psoriasis, chronic pain, cancer, and diabetes.
