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
