Arthritis Foundation Workshops
SAVE THE DATES
MAY 13-14, 2015
The Arthritis Foundation’s new scientific strategy is designed to help us take a more nimble approach to accelerating science, so that more people with arthritis say YES to a better life.
WHAT: Arthritis Foundation Registry Workshop: Improving Health Outcomes for People with Arthritis
HOW: Learn how arthritis-relevant registries can work together to accelerate improving health outcomes for people with arthritis
WHO: Subject matter experts who manage registries and analyze registry data
WHERE: Hilton Atlanta Airport
The next osteoarthritis workshop will be held in February 2016 – more information to come in the Summer of 2015.
Arthritis Foundation Osteoarthritis Workshop 2014 (SNOW VI)
Organized and implemented by the Arthritis Foundation, and attended by the world’s leading osteoarthritis authorities, the 6th Segal North American Osteoarthritis Workshop (SNOW VI) was held October 24-26, 2014, in Chicago. Arthritis scientists from North America and Europe presented new osteoarthritis science that could lead to better ways to detect, treat, prevent and cure osteoarthritis (OA). The workshop, titled “Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury as a Model for Post-traumatic Arthritis and Drug Discovery in Osteoarthritis,” focused on people with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries and the pathophysiology as it evolves over time toward the clinical picture of OA. The goal of the workshop was to consider options for the design of an ACL intervention study.

- SNOW VI Summary
For almost 70 years, the Arthritis Foundation has initiated and supported scientific discoveries that improve health outcomes for people with arthritis. Science holds the key to finding better diagnostics and treatments—and one day a cure—for more than 50 million Americans who face the daily challenges of arthritis. The Foundation is pleased to support a network of scientists across the United States.
“The Arthritis Foundation continues to lead the way in advancing scientific discoveries and seeking solutions that will positively impact the lives of those who suffer with arthritis. Our commitment to finding a cure is unwavering.” -- Amanda Niskar, DrPH, MPH, BSN, National Scientific Director, Arthritis Foundation.
