Thank you for your participation in #CRArthritis. Help us keep this education initiative going by sharing the interviews with your family, friends, and colleagues.

On behalf of Arthritis Consumer Experts and our patient organization colleagues – Kelly English, Shanon McQuitty and Eileen Davidson from the Arthritis Patient Advisory Board of Arthritis Research Canada; Graeme Reed and Don Bindon from the Canadian Spondylitis Association; and Cheryl Koehn and Maya Joshi from Arthritis Consumer Experts – thank you for participating in Arthritis Broadcast Network’s (ABN) 5th Annual #CRArthritis event. The event informed and educated over 1 million people on Twitter and 6,500 people on Facebook over the 4-day conference.

We are excited to announce that all the interviews conducted at the 2020 Canadian Rheumatology Association and Arthritis Health Professions Annual Scientific Meeting are now available on the Arthritis Broadcast Network YouTube channel, under "#CRArthritis Facebook and Twitter Live 2020”. This year, ABN conducted 45 interviews (a new record!) featuring topics ranging from disease-specific research to studies on exercise and other self-care practices. A list of all the interviews, along with their individual links, can be found at the bottom of this email.

Please help us keep this education initiative going through Facebook and Twitter by using the “like”, “share”, and “comment” features and by sharing the interviews with your family, friends, and colleagues.
