PAINWeek is pleased to announce that the Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI)—for the first time—will present a full day track at the PAINWeek National Conference on Tuesday, September 9.
The Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI) is the leading medical society for advancing the understanding, early detection, treatment, and prevention of osteoarthritis (OA) through its exclusive dedication to research. OARSI’s passion and area of focus is on OA, a debilitating disease affecting more than 600 million people around the world. With more than 30 years of experience serving the OA community, OARSI provides the necessary framework, expert resources and support for its international constituents to address the challenges of OA so that the knowledge gained can ultimately be used to help improve patient care and patient outcomes.
Debra Weiner, Executive Vice President, Program Development, remarked, “Given the emergence of new guidelines and therapeutic interventions for osteoarthritis, it is very timely and relevant for OARSI to be at PAINWeek 2020.”
OARSI President Ali Mobasheri commented, “Pain is one of the most important components of osteoarthritis and the key issue that patients complain about. Most drug companies are now focusing on the development of disease modifying drugs that impact on joint structure, function, and pain. OARSI is very excited to start a new collaboration with PAINWeek and jointly highlight the exciting research and new treatment guidelines that are being developed. We look forward to PAINWeek 2020 and further collaboration in subsequent years.”
