TOMS RIVER, NJ, JANUARY 27, 2010 – Rheumatoid arthritis is a long-term disease that leads to inflammation of the joints and surrounding tissues and organs. The disease often progresses slowly with signs of fatigue, loss of appetite, morning stiffness, widespread muscle aches and weakness. Eventually, joint pain and swelling can affect the fingers, wrists, shoulders, elbows, hips, knees, toes and ankles.
Community Medical Center rheumatologist Rajait Dhar, MD, will try to take some of the mystery out of rheumatoid arthritis on Thursday, February 18 at a free lecture, “Can Do – What you can do about Rheumatoid Arthritis.” The program will be held at 3 p.m. at Community Medical Center’s Community Health Education office, 591 Lakehurst Road in Toms River.
Dr. Dhar will address how to both prevent the disease, as well as how to live with rheumatoid arthritis. The program will also focus on treatment options, so patients with rheumatoid arthritis can maintain a high quality of life.
Pre-registration is requested to attend the program by calling 1-888-724-7123.
