Join us at an interactive public forum hosted by the Arthritis Patient Advisory Board of Arthritis Research Canada.

 

What is ROAR?

With rapid changes in access to health care information and health technologies, managing your chronic disease is becoming more collaborative and patient-centred. The 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. Bring your questions, as this is an interactive forum.
