Piper is among four new directors elected by the foundation's Kansas chapter, during the organization's recent annual meeting.
Piper became involved with the Arthritis Foundation after her 7-year-old daughter, Kate, was diagnosed with juvenile arthritis five years ago. Piper also serves on three chapter committees: Fundraising; Public Health, Programs and Policy; and Lawrence Walk.
