Arthritis Care Northern Ireland recently held their annual Health Professional Lecture.
This year our lecture focussed on osteoarthritis.
Health Minister Edwin Poots spoke at the event and praised the dedication and commitment of Arthritis Care NI, saying:
“The achievements and contribution of Arthritis Care promoting research, improving awareness and providing counselling and advice are to be publicly applauded. The key lecture on the growing number of people with osteoarthritis and how the condition is impacted by obesity and unhealthy lifestyles was particularly useful in highlighting the pressure it puts on our health service, and particularly in primary care.”
