May is National Arthritis Awareness Month. We’re hosting a Twitter chat to discuss what the science says about the safety and usefulness of natural products (such as glucosamine and chondroitin) and mind and body approaches (such as yoga, tai chi, and acupuncture) for managing the symptoms associated with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Joining the discussion will be:
Brian Walitt, M.D., M.P.H., Director of Clinical Pain Research for the NCCIH Intramural Laboratory of Clinical Investigations
We’ll be tweeting from @NIH_NCCIH.
