About ENACT: Leaders in Arthritis Rehabilitation

Arthritis steals movement.

Novel approaches are needed to help people with arthritis and other rheumatic conditions such as lupus, fibromyalgia, and scleroderma get movement back and allow full participation in their desired work, family, and community activities. Boston University’s Center for Enhancing Activity and Participation among Persons with Arthritis (ENACT) strives to bring such evidence-based interventions to the communities who need them most.

ENACT collaborates with The Arthritis Foundation’s New England Chapter and students and researchers from Boston University’s School of Medicine, School of Public Health, and School of Communications to enhance lives of persons with arthritis and other rheumatic conditions through research, community education programs, and training. The National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) funded our center and told us to “make the lives of people living with arthritis or rheumatic conditions better.”

The ENACT center is located at Boston University’s College of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences: Sargent College at 635 Commonwealth Avenue, 6th Floor. “Like” us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, join our mailing list, or periodically check this website for activities. Let’s join together to bring movement back to persons with arthritis!
