This World Arthritis Day, on 12th October 2017, Arthritis Action will be attending two events to mark the occasion and spread the word for self-management and what you can do for a healthier, more active you.
Our Services Development Manager and Dietitian Martin Lau and our Group and Events Officer Leah Boylan will be holding a drop-in session at the Sovereign Centre in Eastbourne. Martin and Leah will be welcoming visitors of the Sovereign Centre, one of the biggest leisure centres in the area, from 10am – 3pm. They will be there to discuss arthritis, our self-management approach, and what you can do to better manage the symptoms of your arthritis.
In the evening, Martin will be heading to Haywards Heath to present a talk to the BSL Link for Communication Group. His talk, titled ‘Dietary Management and Arthritis’ will explore how nutrition can affect arthritis as a therapeutic tool.
