What is ROAR?

ROAR 2015 is a public forum organized by patients of the Arthritis Patient Advisory Board for people affected by arthritis.  Attend in person or on-line for this unique opportunity to interact with arthritis researchers and pose pertinent questions.

What can I expect at ROAR?

Patients, researchers and health care providers will gather to discuss the latest research on osteoarthritis, arthritis screening, treatment options and the decision-making process, joint replacement surgery and more. 

Each presentation will be followed by a short Question and Answer period designed to further discussion both online and in person. To end the event a Speakers Panel will provide an opportunity for attendees to join the dialogue and ask questions. 

Who should attend?

People with arthritis, health care professionals, researchers and the general public will all benefit from this discussion.
