Hosted by the Arthritis Foundation, and attended by the world’s leading osteoarthritis authorities, the 6th Segal North American Osteoarthritis Workshop (SNOW VI) will be held October 24-26 in Chicago.
Arthritis researchers from North America and Europe will present new osteoarthritis research that could lead to better ways to detect, treat, prevent and cure osteoarthritis (OA). The title of this year’s workshop is “Prioritization of Osteoarthritis Research: Next Steps.” The agenda will focus on people with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries and the pathophysiology as it evolves over time toward the clinical picture of osteoarthritis (OA). The goal of this year’s workshop is to consider options for the design of an ACL intervention study.
The following sessions will be presented:
Understanding the Challenges for Preventing Osteoarthritis After a Joint Injury
How Pathophysiology of Osteoarthritis Can Inform Treatment Discovery
Surgical and Non-surgical Treatment Options for ACL Injury
Evaluating Osteoarthritis Progression Following ACL Injury
Assessing Outcomes in ACL Intervention Studies
Lessons Learned from ACL Studies
Considerations for the Design of an ACL Intervention Study
For almost 70 years, the Arthritis Foundation has initiated and supported scientific discoveries that improve health outcomes for people with arthritis. Research 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 researchers 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.
