Healthy Aging with Arthritis Virtual Presentations

Join us for live and interactive arthritis information presentations, providing you with an overview of arthritis, symptom management and insight into treatments and self-management strategies to fight the fire of arthritis. Whether you are newly diagnosed with arthritis, unsure if you have arthritis or have been living with arthritis for many years, you’ll benefit from the evidence-based information and strategies that will help you live well. Hosted monthly throughout the fall and winter, these virtual presentations by an Arthritis Society therapist will be followed by an interactive Q and A with a trained Arthritis Society volunteer.

Join these events from the comfort of your own home.
