I had the privilege of seeing several of those on-going projects that are happening at Duke University. I was able to meet many of the researchers behind these important projects and ask questions about their work.
I am excited about what I experienced. It was obvious that the researchers enjoyed what they were doing and were also excited about the possibilities the research could bring to millions of people in the future.
I wrote a little about what I learned on two of the projects at:
- This is No Ordinary Gel for Arthritis Relief
- High Tech Knitting to Eliminate Need of Artificial Joints for Arthritis Sufferers
Most of us either suffer from arthritis or know someone who is. This is because 50 million people have already been diagnosed with it in the U.S. (1 in 5 people). My hope is that this sampling of research the Arthritis Foundation supports will excite you to the point you will see the benefit of supporting the organization.
