This December, Boston University released its Annual Report, a series of video...
The NIDRR-funded Research and Training Center for Enhancing Activity and Participation among Person with Arthritis (ENACT) State of the Science conference brings together leaders in the fields of rheumatology and rehabilitation science organized around the theme “Promoting Activity and Participation among Persons with Arthritis.” This topic is of critical importance particularly given the high prevalence of this disabling condition.
The purpose of this meeting is to create a dialog among experts in the field with the goal of moving the arthritis activity and participation research agenda forward.
Presentations and discussion will focus on innovations for promoting activity and participation in three settings:
1) community, 2) rehabilitation, and 3) employment.“Arthritis and related rheumatic conditions affects the quality of life of nearly a quarter of the U.S. population. There is a critical need for effective interventions aimed at helping people with arthritis remain active and participate in work and community activities” Julie Keysor, Director, ENACT, the Arthritis RRTC
