Arthritis Ireland hosted a webinar entitled 'Arthritis is just an older person's disease' as part of our 3 part lunchtime webinar series we held during National Arthritis Week 2024. We were joined by Dr John Stack, Consultant Rheumatologist and General Physician at the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, Dublin.

This webinar dispelled the myth that arthritis is an older person’s disease and explored the fact that as people live longer the prevalence of arthritis will continue to rise. John also discussed minimising the risk of developing arthritis and the daily impact of this condition, including disruption to education and the ability to work, care for a family, move without pain and maintain independence.
