As you may know, I lecture and teach throughout the city on behalf of the Arthritis Foundation. Many of the programs I do are free and open to the public. A few events coming up in October may be of interest to you or someone close to you:
Arthritis Basics for Change
Oct 11, 2013
3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
This is one of the AF’s most popular public programs. It covers basic information about the various types of arthritis and discusses strategies for people living with the disease, including exercise, nutrition, and ways to manage symptoms and decrease arthritis-related pain.
Location: Podell Auditorium

Charles L. Christian Sympsoium on OA
10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
This annual symposium concerns the care and treatment of osteoarthritis—the bone-on-bone vs. the rheumatoid type. This program will be conducted in partnership with the Hospital for Special Surgery with the focus for this year on the subject of self-management. I will deliver an abbreviated version of the ABC lecture and other speakers will discuss the latest treatment options and research.
Location: Hospital For Special Surgery, 2nd Floor
