I am a pediatric and adult rheumatologist at Boston Children’s Hospital and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. I have an interest in autoinflammatory diseases, medical education, and the role of social media and technology in healthcare.
The Boston Children’s Hospital Autoinflammatory Disease Family Workshop will take place on Saturday, August 22, 2020, from 1-3pm EST and will be held virtually through Zoom.
The program will include discussions on disease updates, emotional wellness and coping, optimal nutrition, and how to work effectively with schools and school nurses. We hope to have an informative conversation and opportunities for Q&A.
While every autoinflammatory disease is different, they share many features about how they affect the health and well-being of patients and their families, and how stress and other triggers may cause disease flares.
This workshop explores how lifestyle and wellness practices can help in managing autoinflammatory diseases. We hope to empower patients and their families and provide them with tools to help them better manage their condition.
The workshop was sponsored by the Autoinflammatory Diseases Clinic at Boston Children’s Hospital and by a generous donation from a patient’s family. It took place at Boston Children’s Hospital, Waltham, on April 28, 2018.
