ENACT’s Active Living with Arthritis podcasts are easy-to-access recordings that bring evidence-based information to adults with arthritis and other rheumatic conditions such as lupus, fibromyalgia, and scleroderma who want to initiate and sustain active lives.

In a casual discussion format, Clinical Professor of Occupational Therapy at Boston University’s Sargent College of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences Dr. Karen Jacobs, highlights physical activity benefits and guidelines while recognizing that sustaining physically active lifestyles can be quite challenging for people with chronic, painful conditions. The podcasts below provide expert information and strategies for overcoming common barriers with the goal of generating a mechanism for people with arthritis and related conditions to maintain active lifestyles.
