The Livingston Health Department, in conjunction with Summit Medical Group, will offer a free presentation, "Living with Arthritis," on Tuesday, October 15, 2019 from 1 pm to 2 pm at the Livingston Senior/Community Center, 204 Hillside Avenue (lower level, Tahaney Room 1).
Approximately 50 million adults in the U.S. are affected by some form of arthritis. Many of those cases suffer from osteoarthritis, which is degenerative, and a small percentage suffer from rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis, autoimmune disorders that inflame the lining of the joints.
Rheumatologist Lauren Kennish, MD will provide an overview of different types of arthritis, with a focus on symptoms, diagnosis, and new treatment and management strategies.
Light refreshments will be provided.
Registration is required. To register, call 973-535-7861 ext. 227 or 228 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
