Stephanie Rosado, MSW, CWHC, a doctoral student in the School of Social Work, was invited to participate in a panel presentation at the 2023 Arthritis Foundation Pathways Conference in San Francisco, CA. The title of this session was "Making Strides and Tackling Osteoarthritis (OA)." This session brought together patient panelists, subject matter experts, and scientists to discuss clinical trials and the future of innovative treatments for OA.

"My participation in this event was extremely rewarding and meaningful as I was able to contribute both a patient's and researcher’s perspective to the discussion," said Rosado. "Overall, the Pathways Conference provided further validation of the importance of my dissertation research, which focuses on psychosocial outcomes associated with OA for various adult populations."
