Community and Academic Programs Abstract/Poster Submissions

We are very excited to announce Movement Is Life is now accepting applications for the 2017 Abstract/Poster Submission for the National Caucus on Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Health Disparities!

We welcome your application to present a poster at our upcoming National Movement is Life Caucus, November 9-10, 2017 at the Washington Marriott at Metro Center located at 775 12th Street NW, Washington DC 20005. A major theme of the Caucus is to increase awareness of the link between osteoarthritis, obesity, and mobility. These issues disproportionately affect women and under-represented minorities contributing to the musculoskeletal (bone and joint) healthcare disparities. We are seeking to highlight community and academic groups with educational efforts which address this topic. Please remember that you must register for the Caucus using one of the links above before submitting your poster/abstract application.
