ENACT_Earphones_300pxWe are pleased to announce the recent release of the first installment of the Active Living with Arthritis podcast series. Initiated by DPT candidate Sara Crandall, ENACT Director Dr. Julie Keysor, and Boston University Clinical Professor of Occupational Therapy Dr. Karen Jacobs, the series offers a unique delivery of evidence-based information designed to promote activity and wellness among those living with rheumatic conditions such as arthritis, lupus, scleroderma, and fibromyalgia.

These podcasts use an engaging, conversational format to summarize key finding s from research studies in rheumatology that examine the effects of staying active.  The overall goal of the series is to generate a mechanism for people with arthritis and related conditions get the information they need to maintain active lifestyles.  These podcasts provide a valuable resource for clinicians and medical practitioners and people living with arthritis.  ENACT hopes that clinicians will begin to use the podcasts in practice with their patients as a means to foster conversation about potential barriers to remaining active.

New podcasts will be released on a monthly basis and are available on the ENACT website, on iTunes, and through an RSS subscription to ENACT.  Please contact Ms. Elizabeth Simpson at lizsimps@bu.edu for more information.
