Women's Health University - "Women and Rheumatic Conditions"

Thursday 11:30 am to 1:30 pm
Jefferson Center Fitzpatrick Hall | 541 Luck Ave. | Roanoke

Did you know that rheumatic conditions affect women two to four times more often than men? Rheumatic and other autoimmune conditions can cause pain, stiffness, and swelling in the joints, as well as muscles and tendons, and can interfere with your daily life. Many of these conditions are chronic and complex, making diagnosis difficult with individualized treatment plans. Join us to learn more about rheumatic and autoimmune conditions that affect women such as lupus, Sjogren's, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoporosis, and know when it's time to see your doctor for more than just aching joints.
