2017 Osteoarthritis Patient-Focused Drug Development Meeting - Virtual Webcast


Make your voice heard at this landmark event – this Arthritis Foundation hosted meeting will provide the U.S. FDA and others an opportunity to hear directly from patients about what matters most to them. The patient’s perspective is critically important in ensuring drug development programs capture what is truly important. Patients and caregivers will share how OA impacts their lives, gaps in treatment and experiences with current treatments.

Register today to join us virtually through our live webinar. Participate in the OA poll, weigh in through a live chat or just listen as we discuss how we can change the fate of OA patients, together.
