CRA Interview Series 2014 – Dr. Vivian Bykerk: Thoughts from a Rheumatologist

Arthritis Broadcast Network’s “CRA Interview Series 2014” – Dr. Vivian Bykerk: Thoughts from a Canadian-American Rheumatologist

Today’s interview features Dr. Vivian Bykerk, rheumatologist and Director of the Inflammatory Arthritis Center of Excellence in New York, USA. She was a rheumatologist in Canada before moving down to the United States with her husband. Dr. Bykerk shares with us some differences in treating patients with inflammatory arthritis between Canada and the United States. She also tells us her tactical plan for preparing her arguments for the Great Debate at the Canadian Rheumatology Association Meeting.

Consumer “reporters” interviewed more than 30 leading professionals at the Arthritis Broadcast Network Booth (ABN) during last month’s Canadian Rheumatology Association and Arthritis Health Professions annual meetings (CRA). Starting March 14, feature interviews will be posted daily on the ABN YouTube channel at http://bit.ly/ABNYouTube. We invite everyone to share the interviews with their networks to strengthen the public profile of arthritis leaders in Canada.
