One in five adult Canadians is currently living with arthritis, a painful, debilitating chronic health condition that affects joints and bones. By 2040, that number is expected to rise by 50 per cent, affecting nearly a quarter of our population.
In response to this crisis, this year’s Krembil magazine shines a light on the Arthritis Program at Toronto Western Hospital. The Arthritis Program incorporates rheumatology, orthopedics, hand and osteoporosis programs that have evolved with the changing needs of our society. It consists of the world’s most innovative clinicians and researchers, who continue to employ tools, resources and philanthropic support to push the boundaries of discovery and to translate those discoveries into advanced patient care.
