ROAR 2017: Managing Arthritis and You

  • This event has passed.

October 21, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

$5

With rapid changes in access to health care information and health technologies, managing your chronic disease is becoming more collaborative and patient-centred. The Reaching Out with Arthritis Research (ROAR) public forum features a group of researchers from Arthritis Research Canada who are at the forefront of these changes. They will share what the latest research, developed in collaboration with patients, is telling us about arthritis care and self-management. Updates on current research will be presented in a relaxed and informative series of talks for people with arthritis and those who care for them. This is an interactive forum – there will be a Q&A after each speaker’s session.

When: Saturday, October 21, 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. PT

Where: In person at the Vancouver Public Library Central Branch – Alice MacKay Room (350 West Georgia Street) or live webcast

I have learned so much about innovation and capacity building by being part of PVN. I signed up to build my leadership skills, however, I experience benefits for myself, my community and Indigenous peoples throughout the province. I understand more about the complexities and opportunities required to improve health care.
