Experts in Arthritis: Updates on Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Juvenile Arthritis
Experts in Arthritis (EIA) is a free public education seminar for people with arthritis and people who care about them.
The program offers people with arthritis the opportunity to be informed about current scientific evidence and management strategies in the treatment and care of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and juvenile arthritis (other forms of arthritis can be incorporated, based on need).
Launched in 2007, hundreds of patients and caregivers have participated, hearing from world-class experts in arthritis care about current scientific evidence and management strategies in the treatment and care of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and pediatric arthritis.
Experts in Arthritis (EIA) has been held in conjunction with the annual scientific meeting of the American College of Rheumatology, the world's foremost gathering of rheumatology health professionals, in Boston, San Francisco, Atlanta, and Chicago. It has also been held on Capitol Hill, in Washington, DC, in association with the annual meeting of the American Occupational Therapy Association in Philadelphia, and at an increasing number of communities across the nation. The sessions are sponsored by the United States Bone and Joint Initiative.
The USBJI has expanded the program and offered it in association with the annual meetings of other organizations, as well as to any local community.
