Everything you always wanted to know about arthritis

18 March 2017

Arthritis is the major cause of disability and chronic pain, with 3.85 million Australians affected and up to 7 million expected to have some form of the disease by 2050.

But what do we know about arthritis and can we do anything to prevent, treat or eradicate it?

Experts from QUT's Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation will present at our Real Health Public Seminar and answer your questions.

The researchers will explain what we know about arthritis and answer questions such as:

  • What is arthritis?
  • What makes you high-risk for arthritis?
  • Is arthritis in your genes?
  • Can you halt arthritis progression? And reverse it?
  • Will arthritis ever be a thing of the past?

Join us for presentations from researchers and surgeons who understand genetics, biology, medicine and - importantly - working with patients.

Stay for light refreshments and a chance to catch up with our researchers.
