Aging & Lupus: Today's Webchat at the Lupus Foundation of America

Morning all ... wanted to give you a quick reminder about the Lupus Foundation of America's November Webchat.

This afternoon, Wednesday, November 14, at 3 p.m. EST, Dr. Ronenn Roubenoff, a Sr. Director of Immunology Medical Research at Biogen Idec, Inc. in Cambridge, MA, will host a Webchat on Aging & Lupus.

Dr. Roubenoff received his M.D. from Northwestern University in 1983, and trained in Internal Medicine and Rheumatology at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he was Chief Resident in Medicine. In 1990 he completed concurrent fellowships in Rheumatology and in Clinical Epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins, receiving a Master of Health Science degree. He then trained in nutrition at Tufts University with Irwin Rosenberg, and in immunology with Charles Dinarello.

Dr. Roubenoff has done pioneering work on the interactions of nutrition, exercise and hormonal and immune regulators of metabolism in aging and chronic disease, including rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. He has published more than 200 papers in the medical literature as well as writing for lay audiences. He is co-author of a New York Times Bestselling book on exercise and nutrition treatment of arthritis.

We hope you can join us for today’s Webchat. It should be interesting.

Until next time, Wick
