I’m Dr. Diane Lacaille, a rheumatologist - aka arthritis doctor - and it's Arthritis Awareness Month. AMA!
I'm the newly appointed scientific director of Arthritis Research Canada, the largest clinical arthritis research centre in North America. I care about improving the lives of people living with arthritis. I hope that through arthritis research, we can find answers that ease the pain and lessen the disability, so that people can triumph over their arthritis.
