We are well into the New Year and we have several items we think will interest you. During the month of March there are two events where your Arthritis Health doctors will be speaking about arthritis. Additionally, there is a short video that makes a compelling case for the benefits of exercise.

To Exercise or Not To Exercise

There is no question!

We highly recommend you watch the video “23 1/2 hours” on You-Tube. It is a short animation with some interesting information on the tremendous benefits of exercise. It will be the best 9 minutes you will spend . . . except of course if you are exercising!

Dr. Wilkinson Speaking at Juvenile Arthritis Conference

The Arizona chapter of the Arthritis Foundation is hosting their annual JIA conference – Living Well with Juvenile Arthritis – Keys to Feeling & Being Your Best. Dr. Wilkinson will be speaking on Naturopathic Medicine and the importance of diet in addressing the cause of disease. Dr. Wilkinson enjoys talking with patients and their families educating them on the importance of diet and inflammation. If you have family members or friends with JIA, this is a great opportunity to come out and hear Dr. Wilkinson and learn about the support available through the Arthritis Foundation.
