Dr. Nathan Wei explains, "This is a great opportunity to bring together a group of speakers who can offer information and inspiration to anyone who has arthritis...and this is especially appropriate since May is Arthritis month." Dr. Wei adds, "This symposium received an overwhelming response last year with 150 participants and more than 40 who were wait-listed. This year looks more promising than ever as we provide up-to-date information on rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, and osteoporosis."
Speakers this year include: Daniel Clauw, MD, professor of medicine, University of Michigan Medical Center, who is often referred to as the "go to" doctor for fibromyalgia; Greg Dennis, MD, medical director, Medimmune; Ralph Salvagno, MD, Carol Zehnacker, DPT and Nikolay Nikolov, MD, Arthritis Branch, National Institutes of Health.
At the symposium, the Arthritis Research Institute will be presenting a college scholarship to a courageous young lady, Erika Franklin, who has had arthritis since she was a child and is pursuing a career in nursing.
