The time to register for the Arthritis State of the Science Meeting Promoting Activity and Participation among Persons with Arthritis is now!  The deadline to register March 28th.

Join us for this one-day conference at the Ritz Carlton in Pentagon City, VA on April 7th, 2014. Evidence-based approaches to address promoting activity and participation among persons with arthritis across rehabilitation, community and employment settings will be discussed.  Our speaker panel includes experts from advocacy organizations, federal government, clinical professional organizations, as well as leading scholars.  The dialogue created by bringing together these experts will serve the ultimate goal of moving the arthritis activity and participation research and policy agenda forward.

On the afternoon of April 6th, ENACT will hold its New Investigator Workshop on Advancing Arthritis Research to foster growth in the area of rheumatological rehabilitation research.  We had an enthusiastic response to our call for applications and are very pleased to have accepted 20 outstanding new investigators. Applicants represent distinguished international academic and clinical institutions in the field of arthritis research.

The Workshop aims to enhance the capability of new investigators to employ innovative and novel research methods to address critical clinical research questions. The Workshop will include opportunities for individual mentoring, as well as presentations on using large data sets and selecting optimal outcome measures.

Register now for the meeting!  We hope you will join us for this exciting opportunity for interdisciplinary discourse.
