Living with Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) affects some 45,000 people in Ireland, with approximately 2,000 people diagnosed annually. Three out of four diagnosed are of working age, although young adults and older people can also develop the disease.
This ‘Living with Rheumatoid Arthritis’ information evening will provide you with information about the condition, what causes it, how it’s diagnosed, treated, and crucially how you can manage and how to take care of RA.
Dr Claire Sheehy, consultant rheumatologist at University Hospital Waterford, will deliver the presentation about RA, which will be followed by a question and answers session.
The information evening will take place in the Tower Hotel, The Mall, Waterford. Registration is from 7.00pm, with the presentation commencing at 7.30pm.
