New workshop series rolls out today

Over the next few weeks, Arthritis Consumer Experts will be sharing a series of 5 joint exam videos with you.

Originally created for the ArthritisID PRO app, now you will be able to watch them from the JointHealth™ website.

Though specifically meant for physicians to use in their practice, arthritis consumers can also watch these videos so they know what to expect. Or, if you suspect you have arthritis, you can show the joint exams to your healthcare provider. Encourage your doctor to visit jointhealth.org or download the free app to view the videos.

The joint exams are demonstrated in English by Dr. John Esdaile, Scientific Director at the Arthritis Research Centre of Canada (ARC) and in French by Dr. Diane Lacaille, Research Scientist also at ARC. Continue reading
