About this Event

What role does diet play in relation to inflammation? How can physical activity manage your symptoms? Why is sleep important for your immune system?

These are just some of the questions which will be addressed during this online symposium about inflammatory arthritis, featuring a panel of expert speakers. In addition to these key issues, the event will also look at why patients’ knowledge of their disease and their diagnosis matters, and consider future developments in patient-focused research.

The symposium will be chaired by Prof Ursula Fearon, chair of molecular rheumatology, Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute and by Prof Douglas Veale, consultant rheumatologist, St Vincent’s University Hospital.
