World Arthritis Day - Roger gives a talk at Arthritis Care Event in Birmingham

Last week on 13th October was World Arthritis Day, for which Roger Newport was asked to give a talk for the an event put on in Birmingham the day before. Roger used his talk to outline his wish that our research (past and present) acts as a stimulant for new research into pain in musculo-skeletal disorders by the wider research community. He also hoped that publicity from the research would help people understand a bit more about how pain works and that pain-killers are not always the answer.

The event itself was very successful generating a lot of interest about our work and other similar work taking place in the field.
