WHEN: September 21st 11:30 am – 1:00 pm EST

Save the date for this free webinar, in which ENACT investigators and an expert panel will discuss results of two ENACT clinical trials: the “Work It” employment study and the BOOST exercise study.

The “Work It” study examined the impact of a novel arthritis work retention intervention. Results demonstrated that the intervention was effective for preventing job loss over time. Presenters will review the trial results, pose discussion points, and discuss challenges for moving the intervention into implementation.

The BOOST exercise study tested the effect of a telephone-based intervention to promote adherence to exercise in a sample of adults with osteoarthritis. Results will be presented and discussion will focus on challenges and opportunities for developing technologies to affect behavioral change.
