The Cy Frank Legacy Lectureship honours and commemorates the late Dr. Cy Frank, an internationally acclaimed visionary who championed the application of research to create solutions for patients. 

On Wednesday, September 28 2022, Dr. Ewa Roos delivered an inspiring lecture sharing the successes of the GLA:D program with us and answering the question, "Osteoarthritis: Putting science into action – why not now?". She honoured the memory of Dr. Cy Frank with her encouragement to, "just do it" by applying research to create solutions for patients today.

Wood Forum

The Wood Forum is an annual free public forum on bone and joint conditions held each year in the Fall.

On Saturday October 29, we had the privilege to hear from experts in the field of joint health at the Wood Forum 2022. Topics included gut health, diet and their affect on osteoarthritis, how to reduce pain from osteoarthritis, understanding when imaging may (or may not) be required and what to do after a knee injury.
