I’m Dr. Jackie Whittaker, physiotherapist and research scientist at Arthritis Research Canada. I’m working to prevent the most common type of arthritis: osteoarthritis. AMA!
It’s Arthritis Awareness Month and I’m here to talk about osteoarthritis research, prevention, symptoms, treatments and more.
It’s estimated that 12 million Canadians will have this painful disease by 2040. I hope you’ll take a few minutes to learn about the life-changing osteoarthritis research done at Arthritis Research Canada, as well as research on other types of arthritis.
Update: Hi, everyone! The AMA has officially completed. Thank you all for participating. I really enjoyed the session and had a great time engaging with everyone. I'm sorry if I wasn't able to get to your questions! If you want to stay up to date on arthritis research, please visit:
