PIX11 & Dr. Wu: Arthritis Awareness Month May 2024

Dr. Karena Wu is the Board Chair of the NYC Arthritis Foundation Local Leadership Board. She joined PIX11 this morning to discuss arthritis during May’s Arthritis Awareness month. Dr. Wu joined anchors Dan Mannarino and Kala Rama to educate the audience on the numbers of people who have arthritis and the multiple types of arthritis listed under this umbrella term.

Arthritis can be local or systemic. Arthritis can also be affected by diet and exercise and Dr. Wu reminded the audience of the inflammatory versus non inflammatory foods that you should consider if you have arthritis. She also discussed different types of exercises and why it was important to do them for arthritis.

The Walk to Cure Arthritis is NYC’s premiere city walk on Saturday, May 18th at 9am in Foley Square. If you would like to participate, please register at www.walktocurearthritis.org/nyc. We are always looking for volunteers and participants to help raise funds for research, improve the quality of life for those affected by arthritic conditions and to try to find a cure. Please join us this Saturday. Team ActiveCare Physical Therapy has already raised over 30K for this important cause.
