The McCaig Institute for Bone and Joint Health is sponsoring a free event on March 14, 2018, featuring the film Maudie followed by a discussion led by rheumatologist and researcher Dianne Mosher about the impact of rheumatoid arthritis and how it can be treated.
A 2016 biographical romantic drama starring Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke, Maudie chronicles the life of Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis and her struggle with rheumatoid arthritis, a potentially crippling disease that strikes the joints.
The event begins with the film at 6:30 p.m. at the Plaza Theatre, 1133 Kensington Rd. N.W., Calgary. Admission and popcorn are FREE.
Dr. Mosher is Chief of the Division of Rheumatology, Department of Medicine, University of Calgary, a researcher with the McCaig Institute, and co-author of Living Well with Arthritis. More on Dr. Mosher.
