NORWICH – Lupus, gout, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis all have something in common. These chronic conditions all affect the joints, soft issues or connective tissue and are thereby included in the medical subspecialty of Rheumatology. Each will also be a topic covered in UHS Chenango Memorial’s new virtual Lunchtime Learning series, a partnership between the Norwich hospital and UHS Rheumatology.
“We work closely with many of the UHS specialty practices, but we are particularly excited about this collaboration with the care team at UHS Rheumatology,” said Chris Kisacky, Vice President of Service Coordination and Development at UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital.
Five specialists from the UHS Rheumatology practice will present on a topic as part of the new series, which will kick off on Tuesday, May 4 with a special presentation on Lupus, led by Dr. Henda Bouali.
The 45 minute program, which will be conducted via Zoom, will start at 12:15 p.m. Those interested in attending can register by calling 337-4183 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
