On Thursday, August 22, Gwinnett Medical Center’s experts in joint health will host a complimentary educational panel, which includes a healthy breakfast, at Buford Community Center from 7:30 to 9 a.m. The event is designed to raise awareness and education surrounding joint health.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, about 24 million adults are limited in their daily activities from joint pain. Joint pain is often associated to another problem you face as you age.

The panel of experts will explain why this isn’t necessarily true, discussing arthritis, joint revisions, non-surgical treatment options and, acute and chronic joint pain.

Panelists include:

- Mary Jo Albert, MD, Orthopedics

- Omar Adbul-Hadi, MD, Orthopedics

- Rashmi Kukarni, MD, Family Medicine

- Robert Wood, MD, Orthopedics
