Do you have questions about arthritis?
Join Dr. John Esdaile, Arthritis Research Canada’s Scientific Director, for a Reddit AMA “Ask Me Anything” on September 7th at 1pm PDT.
Please click here to view the AMA.
Ask questions about the more than 100 different forms of this disease, prevention, treatments and more. It’s the perfect way to launch into Arthritis Awareness Month.
For those who aren’t familiar with AMAs, they are online interviews hosted on Reddit, a social media platform with almost 1.69 billion users. One Reddit user hosts the AMA – in this case, Dr. Esdaile – and others – hopefully you – participate by typing questions.
