ROAR 2017: Managing Arthritis and You

  • This event has passed.

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


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

Join the conversation online with the hashtag #eROAR

Cost: In-person: $5 / Live webcast: free

The Patient Voices Network has connected me to a community with the same drive to bring person- and family-centred care to the forefront. I am grateful for all opportunities I have been a part of thanks to PVN, which positively impacts patients like my sister and their caregivers. No matter how small, all patient engagement will help shape the future of health care and that I can stand behind
